This month's newsletter provides an overview of how the "Achieving Independence" approach works within a Special Needs Trust. We also give a tour of our new www.achievingindependence.com website and how it provides education to families and professionals through free on-line videos, trainings and materials.
This edition of the Achieving Independence Newsletter discusses the use of Limited Conservatorships. Establishing a conservatorship is neither an easy decision nor the right answer for all families, but in the right situation, it is very important in providing protection, support and oversight.
This month's focus is on funding issues. Special Needs Trusts are a unique instrument designed to protect benefits, provide for care according to your wishes and, when structured correctly, assist your loved one into the future.
This quarter's newsletter asks the important question "Is It Time To Update Your Estate Plan?" Why is that important? One only has to look at the numerous changes in programs, benefits, budgets and community services to find the answer.
