Littman Krooks Hosts Informative WorkshopNovember 5, 2015
As part of their commitment to serving the local community, Littman Krooks LLP hosted an outstanding November 4 workshop on special needs trusts.
A special needs trust is an estate planning tool that protects funds intended to enrich the life of a loved one with special needs, while preserving eligibility for public benefits. Founding partner Bernard A. Krooks is a Pegasus parent who understands firsthand the importance of building financial security for family members with special needs.
Littman Krooks attorneys Amy C. O’Hara, Elizabeth Valentin, Marion M. Walsh, and Giulia Frasca presented current information about special needs planning. Topics included the importance of a special needs trust and its role in an estate plan; coordination of government benefits; guardianships and advance directives; review of the ABLE Act; transition planning and the IEP.
The workshop was co-sponsored by local organizations, including Pegasus, the Arc of Westchester, Huntington Learning Center, Miracle League of Westchester, and New Frontiers in Learning. These organizations were in attendance at the workshop to provide information about their services.
