Transitioning to Adulthood as an Individual with Special Needs: Legal Concerns
When a minor child with special needs transitions to being a legal adult (age 18), there are several things that need to be kept in mind from a legal standpoint and done correctly so that individual does not lose out on any potential benefits that he/she may be otherwise entitled. In this video, a recording of a presentation done for a private group in March 2022, Attorney Landon Hodges discusses those legal concerns for families that have individuals with special needs. Among the specific items discussed are guardianships, supplemental security income (SSI), social security disability insurance (SSDI), the Pennsylvania ABLE Act, special needs trusts, Medical Assistant Benefits for Workers with Disabilities (MAWD), and much more.
