Estate Planning for Families With Special Needs and Substance Abuse Beneficiaries

Do you have a close family member with a substance abuse disorder or special needs? Do you have friends caring for loved ones with these issues? Do you struggle with the anxiety of what might happen to your special loved one after your death? Providing your problem beneficiary with a blank check inheritance could obviously spell disaster.

Unfortunately, the growing epidemic of addiction is changing the landscape of many of our client’s estate plans, necessitating a complex and often confusing process for protecting their heirs. At the same time, there has been a significant increase in both special needs diagnoses and awareness. In this video, Gina Ciani, Chair of the Meyers, Roman, Friedberg & Lewis Estate Planning practice group, will discuss the legal complexities of planning for these unique beneficiaries and the critical plans you need to put in place to protect your loved ones while also ensuring your own peace of mind.
