The American Bar Association is holding a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program entitled, Special Needs Trusts: An Introduction to What, Why, When, Who and How, on September 17, 2014 from 1:00 – 2:30 PM Eastern, via webinar. Here is why you should attend:
A panel of nationally recognized attorneys in the area of disability planning will present an overview of special needs trusts (SNTs). Topics will include an explanation of the three types of special needs trusts, along with a discussion of when—and which type of—an SNT should be considered for a person with a disability. A summary of federal and state law and regulations affecting drafting of SNTs and the interpretation by the Social Security Administration, state Medicaid agencies, Department of Housing and Urban Development and other sources of government benefits for persons with disabilities will be addressed, along with the types of items and services an SNT can provide, considerations in choosing a Trustee and where to locate experienced attorneys to prepare SNTs and advise on administration.
