The seminar addresses the basics of special needs trusts. A special needs trust is designed to ensure that beneficiaries can use the assets as intended for their benefit.

"This special needs trust seminar is designed to give legal professionals a guide to properly plan for the future of the special needs dependent," stated Begley Law Group attorney Dana Bookbinder.

Bookbinder is speaking about the possible impact of the Affordable Care Act. Other topics covered include: how to set up a discretionary trust to supplement SSI income; advantages of trusts; tips on document drafting; how to best select a trustee and an overview of the trustee's duties; and issues in liquidation.

This NJ ICLE program has been approved by the Board on Continuing Legal Education of the Supreme Court of New jersey for up to 4.5 hours of total CLE credit. The seminar is in New Brunswick on Thursday June 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the NJ Law Center. Parties interested in registering can go to NJICLE.com for details or call 732-214-8500.
