WSLL Recommends: Special Needs Trusts Handbook

This book covers special needs planning for the estimated 43 million Americans who have one or more physical or mental disabilities.

The Special Needs Trusts Handbook enables attorneys to handle the complex requirements of drafting and administering trusts for clients who are mentally or physically disabled, or who wish to provide for others with disabilities.

The one-of-a-kind reference helps determine which trust is appropriate, how to draft each trust to cover specific issues, and how to administer each trust making certain that clients maintain public benefits while still receiving funds from the trust.

Updated semi-annually, the Handbook also covers a broad range of issues that lawyers in the fields of elder and disability law confront, including specific types of disabilities, the various public and private benefits that are available to person with disabilities; estate planning for parents of children with disabilities; specific types of special needs trusts, and structured settlements in personal injury cases.

Also included is a CD containing appendixes with practice forms and other practice aids. This single volume loose leaf binder is authored by Certified Elder Law Attorney Thomas D. Begley, Jr and Wisconsin Elder Law Attorney Angela E. Canellos.
