Where do we start? That’s often a question adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families ask after they have recognized the importance of future planning. Expressing future wishes and financial planning are first steps in creating a plan for the future that will allow for a person with I/DD to live as independently as possible.
During this webinar, you will hear about a chapter of The Arc that is doing excellent work in helping families plan for the future. Learn about the important elements that families may want to include as they document future wishes. An attorney experienced in special needs planning will provide an overview of financial planning and discuss the importance of establishing a special needs trust.
