9:00 – 9:30 Overview of Special Needs Planning Basics  
Special needs planning is not just a third party and/or a first party special needs trust. It is not just estate planning, not just guardianship and alternatives to guardianship.  In this session, you will also learn how to effectively prepare for and conduct the initial consultation, including topics you should cover in addition to estate planning, such as the who, what, why, where and how of accessing the Illinois “maze” of services for individuals with special needs, Letters of Intent, etc.

Understanding the benefits and services available to an individual with special needs will help to inspire your creativity to better serve your clients for a more secure future. SSI, SSDI, Medicare, IL Medicaid, and waiver services will be highlighted.
