Families often feel overwhelmed by the daily issues and challenges they face in caring for their child with special needs. While it is difficult to look ahead, it is extremely important to plan now for the financial future of your child. Maintaining eligibility for state and federal government benefit programs beyond the age of 18 is an important part of utilizing resources for maximum support. Parents and other caregivers need to understand the implications of their current financial and legal decisions on their child's future.

The Complex Care Center at Cincinnati Children's provides information to patients and families to assist in estate and future planning.
