Trust & Estates Webinar: Article 81 Guardianship and Supplemental Needs Trusts

WHEN: Thursday, April 23rd at 5:00 PM EST

Join us in the comfort of your own home to learn about Article 81 Guardianships and Supplemental Needs Trusts


This week’s topic will be Article 81 Guardianships for disabled adults and Supplemental Needs Trusts.  Both are vehicles to assist disabled children and adults and best provide for their needs while protecting their certification for various state and federal benefits.

Article 81 guardianships and Special Needs Trusts are usually created on behalf of adults who are unable to care for themselves and meant to provide the incapacitated person with assistance without completely removing the incapacitated person’s independence.

This webinar will cover the following topics:

• The similarities and differences between Article 81 Guardianships & Special Needs Trusts.

• What are the responsibilities of being a guardian?

• What steps are needed to file for guardianship?

• Why should you establish a supplemental needs trust?

• What types of supplemental needs trusts are available?

Each attendee will be eligible for a free consultation with one of our Trust & Estate Attorneys to discuss your estate planning needs. Free consultations will be limited to situations in which the disabled person is a resident of the state of New York. .
