The importance of creating a financial plan, in which care for a loved one is paramount, is critical for many investors. In some cases, these plans include creating a Special Needs Trust ("SNT") as well as maximizing government assistance from Social Security and Medicaid. On this episode we dive deep into this important topic with Ashley Velategui, a Director in Bernstein's Wealth Strategies Group. We explain how Special Needs Trusts work, their special features, and how to most effectively create them. Ashley demystifies the complexity behind many of the government assistance programs and highlights strategies to maximize benefits. We also explain ABLE Accounts and how they can be a part of the overall plan.
