FT-2700Estate Planning Assistance Definition
Programs that offer a review of options and assistance to people who want to provide for the administration and/or protection of their assets during their lifetime, develop a plan for managing their finances in the event of a disabling illness, prepare binding instructions for the health care they wish to receive or avoid should they become terminally ill, make arrangements for the disposition of their assets with a minimum amount of taxation upon their death and provide for the administration of their estate should their spouse or other beneficiaries be incapable of managing their affairs. Estate planning provides an opportunity for individuals to make their wishes known and to name the person(s) who will be responsible for carrying out those directives. Tools available during the estate planning process include a Last Will and Testament, durable power of attorney for health care, durable financial power of attorney and a directive to physicians such as a living will, natural death directive or other state-recognized document. A revocable living trust may also be appropriate in some circumstances.
FT-2700.8600-800Special Needs Trust Preparation Assistance Definition
Programs that provide assistance for people who want to establish a trust for a chronically and severely disabled beneficiary which supplements government benefits such as SSI and Medicaid rather than supplanting them and which provides an income for the person with a disability within allowable limits. Special needs trusts are generally established using the assets of a third party but may, under certain specified conditions, be established with the disabled person's own funds, and are managed by a trustee on behalf of the individual with a disability. Trusts established with the disabled person's funds may have "pay back" requirements which enable the state to collect funds at the end of the trust as reimbursement for medical care expenditures. Special needs trusts may be revocable or irrevocable, and may be established and utilized on behalf of the person with a disability while the parents or others funding the trust are still living (an intervivos or living special needs trust) or following the death of the parents (a testamentary special needs trust).
