Question & Answer With Darlene Kemp
Q: My adult daughter is disabled. I want her to live as independently as possible. I also want to financially help her. What can I do, so I do not disrupt the government benefits she is receiving?
A: July, the month of our country’s independence, is a great time to consider your options for assisting your daughter. You can gift money to your daughter through the use of a special needs trust. She will not lose her benefits and the money deposited into the trust can be used for items or services the benefits do not cover. By using a professional trustee, you will be ensured that the law will be followed, and your daughter will live a good quality of life.
