The Trust that Every Will should Have
Your Last Will and Testament should empower your administrator to elect to distribute any recipient’s bequest under your Will into an Unique Requirements Trust, consequently protecting the bequest.
When you leave someone a bequest in your Last Will and Testimony, it is your intent that the bequest need to benefit that person, not cause them financial detriment. Regrettably, often getting a bequest under a Will can trigger the recipient to be disqualified from government benefits which they are presently receiving, or would have otherwise been eligible to receive.
Your Last Will and Testimony must empower your administrator to elect to disperse any recipient’s bequest under your Will into an Unique Needs Trust, thereby preserving the bequest.
The distributions from a Special Requirements Trust can be used to enhance the quality of life of the recipient, as the funds in the trust are offered for such things as recreational products and services, specific assistance services, therapy, rehab, training programs, education, transportation (including car purchase), important dietary needs, prescription medication, medical, eye and oral expenditures, and other care that is not, or not sufficiently covered by governmental programs.
