Frequently Asked Questions - Special Needs Planning

 

Q.  How can you help us?
A.  Most parents come to us in a crisis mode that falls within the category of “things that keep you up at night.” These might include a Medicaid/SSI application that needs to be completed, a special needs trust, or preparing for the move to adulthood (age 18). We identify these issues, develop a plan of accomplishment, and then get it done.


Q.  What is the fee structure?

A.  Each case is unique. The first discovery meeting is completed at no cost. At the end of that meeting, we will provide you with a process estimate. The estimate will include an annual total based upon project elements and what the client wants to accomplish.
