Announcement  –  November 2017

An extensively updated edition of Legal Planning for Special Needs in Massachusetts is now available.








Legal Planning for Special Needs in Massachusetts, by attorney Barbara Jackins, is a must have resource for parents of children with special needs and the professionals and advocates who assist them.

In an easy-to-read, conversational style, she covers the essential elements of SSI, guardianship, and estate planning in Massachusetts when there is a child with a disability in the family.

You will find the information you need to:

  • Obtain SSI benefits for a child who is age 18 or older
  • Contribute to your child’s financial support without reducing public benefits
  • Understand the court process for guardianship (including antipsychotic medication)
  • Learn about the alternatives to guardianship
  • Protect your child’s inheritance from being lost or mismanaged while assuring continued public benefits
  • Coordinate your life insurance and retirement assets with your overall estate plan

Don’t live in Massachusetts? Check out Managing a Special Needs Trust: A Guide for Trustees, for information that covers uniform practices that have been adopted in most states as well as the rules of the major federal benefit programs that provide cash, medical benefits, and housing subsidies to people with disabilities.
