Trust Administration with a Corporate Trustee

Special Needs Family Services serves as a professional trustee to manage all of the assets in the trust and make decisions about distributions to the beneficiary. We are available to be engaged immediately, or named as a successor trustee in your estate planning documents.

Why choose Special Needs Family Services as a trustee?

  • You might not have a family member appropriate to be trustee, or you want a trustee well-versed in the requirements of special needs beneficiaries
  • Having a corporate trustee means you won’t need to worry about your beneficiary outliving their trustee
  • We hire professional investment managers so we can focus our attention on the unique needs of each beneficiary while applying our deep knowledge of public benefits and trust law

Guardianship or Conservatorship

Guardianship or Conservatorship

Different states may use the term guardianship or conservatorship to refer to a legal determination of incapacity by a court. Special Needs Family Services can serve as your loved one’s guardian and act as a protector, advocate, and voice to make decisions on behalf of your disabled person and loved one when you can’t. As with a professional trustee, we can help where you have no family or others appropriate to serve in the guardianship. We can be appointed now, or you can nominate us to serve later in your will or other document tailored to your state law.

Health Care Proxy and Power of Attorney

You might not have a trusted friend or family member to serve as your Health Care Agent, or Agent under a Durable Power of Attorney. Even if you do, you might need a backup for that trusted friend or family member. Special Needs Family Services can serve in these roles for you or your loved one, ensuring that your wishes and intentions are carried out.
