This is in part because self-settled Special Needs Trusts cannot be funded by people who are 65 years or older. However, there are still many options available to the older client. We have represented numerous clients over 64 and provided unique and valuable planning techniques to preserve their settlements (See Success Stories). In addition, an elderly plaintiff who may not be severely disabled must consider the future possibility of needing expensive nursing home care. The planning for this type of care is extremely time sensitive and should be investigated as soon as an older plaintiff knows that a financial recovery is on the horizon.
