How to Protect Your Family Members' Income-Based Benefits and Disability Benefits With a Will

Did you know that if you have a family member receiving income-based or disability benefits, you need a Will to protect their benefits? 

Do you have a Special Needs Child? Is your parent in a nursing home on Medicaid?  Does your sibling receive disability benefits or SNAP? If your next of kin is receiving disability benefits, Medicaid, and/or SNAP, they could instantly stop receiving these benefits if they inherit from your estate. You can protect your loved one by providing for them in your Will using carefully constructed language. The exact provisions to include in your Will to maximize financial protection for your loved ones and help them keep their benefits will largely depend on your finances, unique family circumstances, the type of benefits your family members are currently receiving, and a number of other important factors.
