Attorneys Michael Gilfix and Mark R. Gilfix will be presenting the free seminar on Wednesday, May 1, 2019. Several of the Bay Area’s best special needs-oriented nonprofits, including NAMI, The Pacific Autism Center for Education, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Pragnya and many others will also be in attendance.

Gilfix & La Poll’s signature annual event aims to help families navigate the complexities of special needs planning. The two-hour seminar will be offered twice — at an afternoon session that begins at 2 p.m. and an evening session that starts at 6 p.m. Michael Gilfix and Mark R. Gilfix will share up-to-date, reliable information about special needs trusts and how to use them.

A special needs trust is a crucial legal tool that provides lifelong financial security to a child or family member who is disabled without harming their eligibility for government benefits. Seminar attendees can learn about how to create and manage a trust, as well as the various considerations involved with planning for the future of a special needs individual.

“It’s important to realize that special needs trusts and public benefits are not mutually exclusive,” explained attorney Michael Gilfix, a nationally recognized leader in special needs planning and author of the book “Special Needs Trust Creation and Management Guide.” “In fact, these trusts actually complement government programs like Medi-Cal and Supplemental Security Income as the assets held within them are not counted toward eligibility.”

“Each family faces unique challenges when addressing the long-term requirements and comfort of a loved one with special needs,” commented special needs planning attorney Mark Gilfix. “There are a lot of misconceptions circulating out there. We want to make sure families are equipped with the right information so that they can make decisions that are in their best interests. A special needs trust is often the most important planning tool a family will ever create. We are excited to educate the community about this.”
