Parents with special needs children must take the necessary precautions in planning for their future care. To plan for a special needs child’s future care, parents need to make sure they plan their estate accordingly. If parents do not execute an estate plan, a special needs child receiving social security income (SSI) could lose their benefits if they receive inheritance money or any other gift. However, if parents take the necessary steps in planning their estate, the special needs child will receive their inheritance without losing any benefits. See here.
