Families with special needs individuals face numerous unique financial, legal and tax challenges. Although these issues are complex, and many times exhausting, having an integrated financial plan is critical. This workshop will provide a financial and legal overview with an eye towards special needs. Other topics that will be discussed are tax related issues such as the provision that allows 529 money to be used for educational expenses for private school, educational tax deductions, the integration of employer and government benefits and ABLE accounts.
