Kid’s First Seminar
On Thursday 1 February 2018 Philip Warford is speaking to parents and carers at Merton Mencap’s Kids First Group about Wills and Trusts for children and young people with additional needs.
Kids First is a forum for parents and carers of children or young people who are aged between 0-25 years, living in the Merton area and have a disability or additional needs.
Philip will talk about how families can provide for a disabled child if they are no longer there to care for them using Wills and Trusts.
Although many people will already have Wills in place, a Will has the potential to cause financial difficulties for a person with additional needs. For example, by leaving a cash sum to a disabled person, it could impact their entitlement to means tested benefits, now or in the future.
Philip will present the options available to parents to ensure their vulnerable child is protected throughout their lifetime and their entitlement to benefits are safeguarded.
Other topics that will be covered are:
- Why it is important to make a Will
- The different Trust options
- Choosing Trustees & Executors
- Your Letter of Wishes, how it works
- Leaving Gifts in a Will
- How to prepare for your Solicitor’s meeting
