Often Forgotten Considerations for Disability Planning

QuestionWhen planning for the possibility of disabilities, there are more considerations than Medicaid, durable power of attorney, and a health care proxy. Here are some additional considerations:

  • A disability doesn’t always mean inability to walk or make decisions
  • Disabilities vary in how they affect an individual
  • Disabilities should not all be treated the same, but planned for based on individual circumstances and needs
  • It is important to understand the affects of various conditions, especially neurological conditions

See Martin M. Shenkman, How Neurologic Conditions Affect Planning, Wealth Management, June 24, 2014.
