Adding Up the Costs of Disability: The Need to Plan
Taxes, trusts, and treatments -- oh my. If you're reading this blog, I probably don't need to tell you it's expensive to care for someone with a disability. In a recent discussion with Disability Scoop, the co-founder of the Academy of Special Needs Planners gave tips on planning for the future -- touching on issues from government benefits to taxes to long-term planning.
If you have a loved one with a disability, this is important information explained in a clear way. If you're not personally affected, I still encourage you to read this so you understand the hoops families have to jump through because of complicated and often illogical government regulations. Read the interview.
