Special Needs Trusts vs. ABLE Accounts – An In-Depth Discussion 

Future planning has additional considerations when your family has a special needs child, and during the first part of 2021, we will be providing webinars to help you consider what may be needed for your family. 

Since the enactment of the ABLE Act at the end of 2014, this important piece of disability legislation provides one option for financial future planning for the future with your choice of establishing with Texas or another state that permits out-of-state residents to participate. This webinar provides a detailed comparison of the pros and cons of an ABLE account and a Special Needs Trust…and why a family may need both (or only one).

Even if you see yourself as a parent without finanical means, find out how you can leverage common financial planning tools to fund a special needs trust, and how you can implement a strategy to grow an ABLE Account.

Financial Advisors Kacy Seitz and Melissa Delgado Aguirre will be joining us for this presentation.

Join us for this no-cost webinar on Wednesday, February 3rd from 10:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. MST. 

To learn more you can email info@thearcofelpaso.org or you can call (915) 564-4978. 

The Arc of El Paso is here to help with your future planning needs.
