Hello are you on line with me?
Our chat has ended, but you can still continue to ask me questions here until you are satisfied with your answer. Come back to this page to view our conversation and any other new information. Can you tell me if your son is an adult and if the disability payments are coming from SSI?
A special needs trust can be set up. If you can give me a little more information I can provide you with the process.
yes I am
My son is an adult and yes, he receives SSI. He is living in a group home. He has assets that amount to about $50,000 and I would like them in some kind of a medicare pay back trust or disability trust or whatever makes the most sense, so that the funds can be available to help with his support
A special needs trust can be set up.
Will you please provide the lawyer referral link? Thank you
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
