CHICAGO, IL – Clark Hill Clark Hill attorney Ray J. Koenig III to speak on “Disabled Persons: Planning for and Implementation of Special Needs Trusts & Guardianship” at the fall Chicago Estate Planning Council luncheon on October 19, 2016 in Chicago. Koenig will co-present with Kristin Weaver, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Guardianship Services at Northern Trust.
Koenig’s presentation will address the issue of a growing disabled population requires planning for special needs as well as meeting the needs of those who may not have planned ahead. Creating a plan that will assist a family member who cannot provide for himself should accomplish the preservation of governmental benefits eligibility, the enhancement of the person’s life by supplementing governmental benefits, and meeting the person’s wishes for the ultimate distribution of his assets. In the absence of a plan, addressing the disabled person’s needs through guardianship provides much needed protection.
