I live in Illinois and my question is about the legal guardianship of my adult son with disabilities. I am his guardian and my husband is co-guardian. We are divorcing. Does being co-guardians mean we both have to sign for everything? Also what happens if there is an emergency and I am the only one with our son (which is often the case)?
My son was disabled prior to age 18 and is now 39. He lives with us at home and draws Social Security benefits on his dad's work record. I will be 62 in June and have applied for early retirement. Will our son be able to draw from my work record as well?
I receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. My car is 19 years old and not so reliable. I'm thinking of driving it to the junk yard and buying another one. How much, maximum, I can spend on it?
Does a gift of $14,000 this year to a special needs trust (SNT) qualify for the annual gift tax exclusion?
A divorced couple has separate special needs trusts (SNTs) for their two special needs adult children. The father has one trust for each beneficiary and the mother also has one trust for each beneficiary. The father does not want the mother to contribute to the trusts he has set up. Will this cause legal problems?
I have a patient who receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI) but can't manage her own money. Can we set up a special needs trust to receive her benefits and use them for her benefit over the course of the month?
I have an adult son who receives both Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Medicare. Is there an interstate agency that assists with moves from one state to another so my son will not lose eligibility for government benefits?
