What is a Conservatorship?
A Conservatorship is a court case where a judge appoints a responsible person or organization (called the “Conservator”) to care for another adult (called the “Conservatee”) who cannot care for himself or herself or manage his or her own finances. The Judge will decide if you will have the power of all or some of the below responsibilities over the Conservatee:
Preparation for Regional Center Clients with one petitioner ~ 800
Each additional petitioner ~ 100
What is a Special Needs Trust (SNT)?
A Special Needs Trust (SNT) allows for a disabled person to maintain his or her eligibility for public assistance benefits (Medical, IHSS, Social Security and more), despite having assets that would otherwise make the person ineligible for those benefits. Instead of leaving assets directly to the disabled adult child, the parents would establish a SNT leaving an inheridence to the SNT in their own Living Trust or Will. The SNT would not be under the control of the child, and the child would not be able to revoke it and use the assets for his own purposes. The trust would have an independent trustee and would continue for the lifetime of the child.
It happens all too often. The government provides benefits to disabled or ill people but if the ill or disabled people inherit some money from their parents, suddenly the benefits stop until the inheritance is depleted by the disabled child. What took a life time of saving by parents hoping to help their children is wiped out in a few months.
