If you have a special needs child, you know that child needs more attention and care.  You want to protect your child and be sure that he or she continues to be cared for properly even if you are gone.

You may think that one of your other children will provide care for a special needs child after you are deceased.  While your child may be willing to provide this care, how will your child’s spouse feel about this?  Will the spouse welcome your special needs child into the home?

You may also think that you can leave all of your assets to one of your other children and he or she will provide financially for your special needs child.  What happens if that trusted child predeceases you, becomes disabled after receiving the inheritance meant to be used for special needs child, or spends that inheritance?  There are many things that can happen that will prevent your child from taking care of the financial needs of your special needs child.

That’s why you need to use a trust for your special needs child.  The trustee is required to hold the money left in the trust and use it only for the special needs child.  If the trustee dies or becomes disabled, a successor trust named by you fills the void.  With a trust, you don’t have to worry about what happens if you leave money to another child and that child dies, becomes disabled, is sued or is tempted to spend the money intended for the special needs child.

In addition to establishing a trust for your special needs child, you should leave detailed instructions for his or her care.  That way the trustee has a better idea about how to actually care for your special needs child.
