Families with special-needs members do not plan because they don’t know where to start and are afraid to begin.
Financial Freedom for Special Needs Families helps families get started, first by taking time to address their fears and then by taking them through a step-by-step process on how to put the right plans in place to ensure a bright and fulfilling life for the entire family.
This webinar covers essential reasons to plan and helps you get motivated to take action.
At the end of this webinar, you will know what steps to take next, the role of the special-needs trust and how to stay motivated to preserve benefits, get out of debt and build a strong financial life to seek the highest quality of life for each member of your family.
