Last week, I explained that special needs trusts are frequently associated with fees as high as three percent. However, a properly designed special needs trust should cost no more than 1.25 percent per year — almost a third as much as the norm.

When considering a special needs trust, collecting the right information is critical. Parents must be well-informed from the beginning to avoid paying a staggering amount of their child’s money to trust costs.

It all starts with finding a trustworthy team to explain the ins and outs. That’s what we do. Please feel free to call for a free consultation on how to set up a special needs trust or to evaluate whether your child may need one.
