UCF CARD + Law Offices of Hoyt & Bryan – ABC’s of Special Needs Trusts and Guardian Advocacy

March 11 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

ABC's of special needs and guardian advocacy

This informative workshop is designed for parents, guardians and advocates of individuals with special needs.

Attorneys Sarah AuMiller and Peggy Hoyt will discuss the importance of legal and estate planning for families with special needs.

A family member with special needs creates an added layer of complexity to estate planning – the need for advanced trust planning and guardianship.

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of special needs trusts – both first party and third party trusts, including why they are important for protecting government benefit eligibility and providing lifetime protection for vulnerable individuals. We will also explore both guardianship and guardian advocacy – when each is appropriate and why they are essential for the protection of your loved ones.
