The biggest single worry of parents with a special needs’ child is how to protect their child after the parents have passed away. This session will look at the options for setting up appropriate structures to safeguard the interests of special needs children through the Will and trust arrangements, including:

  • Predicting the unpredictable – looking at the capacity and needs of the child into the future
  • Assessing ongoing physical, accommodation, medical, financial, social and other support required
  • Management of equality of distribution and sibling issues and heading off potential challenges to the estate
  • Setting up a protective trust in the Will to meet the needs of the beneficiary
  • The use of a Special Disability Trust – what is it and how it can be a useful estate planning tool
