Special Needs Trust Administration Bootcamp

Aired on March 18, 2022

Three of the most important services a person with a disability and their family seek are shelter, caregiving, and transportation. 

Yet  providing these services can be fraught with peril if the special needs planning professional has not carefully considered the issues around each of these services.

This program dives deep into the legal, practical and logistical issues that arise when planning and managing a person with a disability’s need for shelter, caregiving, and transportation.

  • Summarize the use and impact of public benefits in providing services
  • Practical issues of ownership and management, important checklists to make sure everything is considered
  • Creative strategies in overcoming obstacles
  • Common problem areas to consider

Our speakers have a collective 40+ years’ experience creating and creating special needs plans and administering special needs trusts and will use that experience and their solutions to your advantage.
