  • How do you, as parents or guardians, navigate the often-confusing maze of public benefits programs that may be available to help people with disabilities?
  • How do you prepare needed documents, forms and financial information required to apply for a range of public benefits and/or appeal a denial of benefits?
  • What are the benefitsof Ohio STABLE accounts and how are they established?
  • What family, emotional and practical needs should be considered when planning a continuum of financial care for persons with disabilities?

Being the parent, guardian or caregiver of a child or adult with a disability is extremely difficult, and making the right financial planning decisions for loved ones with disabilities can be even more challenging. Fortunately, there are disability planning professionals who can provide the answers you need.
