Why is it important for someone to put an special needs trust in place if they want to leave money to a disabled person?

It’s important to do planning for a disabled person and put the funds in a special needs trust to preserve the benefit that the beneficiary of that trust receives by the government. If you don’t plan for this, then you could destroy their ability to receive those benefits and it may be difficult for that person to obtain the benefits in the future. Planning for a disabled individual through a special needs trust is most important to preserve those benefits.
