Parents of Special Needs Children Have Options in Planning for the Future.
Brehm Preparatory School in Carbondale is hosting a virtual workshop on March 11 to help caregivers of those with special needs, plan for the future. Jeremy Robbins, the head of the school, says the evening will feature a certified financial planner bringing to light, assistance, that caregivers might not be aware of.
"Supplemental security income SSI. Special needs trusts. Accounts, called able accounts, and are really intended to help designated beneficiaries pay for qualified disability expenses."
Another goal of the workshop , Robbins says, is giving families some peace of mind.
"And so gaining a sense of that folks aren't really at it alone, and don't necessarily need to reinvent the wheel."
