How can you (or another member of your family)
leave money for a relative with mental illness without making them
ineligible to receive public benefits such SSI, Medicaid, etc? A
Special Needs Trust could be a solution. See the NAMI 2015
Convention workshop presentation and Special Needs Alliance newsletter
feature articles for more information.

SPECIAL NEEDS ALLIANCE
The following articles are from The Special
Needs Alliance Voice Newsletter.
The Special Needs Alliance
is a national, non-profit organization committed to helping
individuals with disabilities, their families and the professionals who
serve them. Many of member attorneys have family members with special
needs; all of them work regularly with public benefits, guardianships/conservatorships,
planning for disabilities and special education issues. They volunteer
significant time to the special needs community and advocate for
legislative and regulatory change to improve quality of life for
individuals with disabilities.
