The Law Office of Claudia I. Pringles helps parents, guardians, and others establish special needs trusts for the children and adults they care about. A special needs trust can be set up to provide a better quality of life for a person with a physical disability, mental disability, developmental disability or a chronic illness.
Whether funded through gifts, inheritance, life insurance or court settlements, special needs trusts are created to preserve assets for the benefit of the individual without jeopardizing much needed government benefits. In Vermont, these government benefits include SSI, Medicaid and more.
If you are interested in learning more about special needs trusts (also known as supplemental needs trusts), please contact our office to arrange a consultation. For your convenience, consultations can be held in Montpelier, Rutland or Burlington, Vermont.
Ms. Pringles is also available to speak to parent support groups and other non-profit organizations regarding special needs planning and transition age topics.
