Gilfix & La Poll Associates Presents the 11th Annual Special Needs Trust Seminar for Families of Special Needs Individuals

Palo Alto, CA (Law Firm Newswire) March 20, 2015 – On April 9, 2015, Gilfix & La Poll Associates will present the 11th Annual Special Needs Trust Seminar, an extraordinary event designed for the family members of special needs individuals.

Every year, this two-hour seminar presents the most up-to-date information about special needs trusts. Families learn the ways in which special needs individuals can benefit from a special needs trust, as well as optimal approaches to creating and maintaining such a trust.

“A special needs trust can provide lifelong financial security for a special needs individual without disturbing eligibility for public benefits, making it the most important kind of trust for a special needs person,” remarked Michael Gilfix, a nationally-known special needs attorney. “The seminar gives families the information they need to get started on creating a better safety net for their loved one.”

Michael Gilfix will cover the latest information about public benefits, housing, the recently-passed ABLE Act, and a number of other topics important to families of special needs individuals.

Gilfix has gained national recognition for his approaches to special needs planning, and he is regularly featured in publications such as the Wall Street Journal. He is the author of the Special Needs Trust Creation and Management Guide, a book used by parents of special needs individuals and others who create and manage trusts for special needs individuals.

The seminar will be held at the Crowne Plaza Cabana in Palo Alto. It will be presented twice, both at an afternoon and an evening session. The afternoon session begins at 2:00 p.m., and the evening session begins at 6:00 p.m. Sessions are expected to last for about two hours. Both sessions are free and open to the public.

The Special Needs Trust Seminar is regularly co-sponsored by notable organizations including Autism Society San Francisco, Institute on Aging, Fremont Bank, Morgan Autism Center, Jewish Family and Children’s Services, Life Services Alternatives, and the Pacific Autism Center for Education (PACE). A number of these organizations will be in attendance and available to provide information about services at both sessions of the seminar.

Interested parties can contact Gilfix & La Poll Associates to register over the phone. Online registration is also available on the Gilfix & La Poll website.
