Special Needs Planning

Special Needs Estate Plan Package


If you are a family member, friend, or guardian of an individual with special needs, you may wish to choose the Special Needs Estate Plan Package instead of a traditional will or trust.

Individuals: $2,400

Third-Party Supplemental Needs Trust


Unlike the Special Needs Estate Plan Package, a Third-Party Supplemental Needs Trust is not an estate plan. Instead, it is a trust set up specifically to benefit an individual with special needs by a third party (often a friend or family member). It is structured to make assets available to the special needs individual without rendering them ineligible for public benefit programs such as Medicaid and supplemental security income (SSI).

$1,750

First-Party Special Needs Trust

Also known as a d4a Trust or Payback Trust, these documents are extremely important in assisting people with disabilities who receive money and cannot lose their government benefits. Without such a trust, the person with the disability would lose crucial benefits such as Medicaid, Social Security, or other government benefits that they depend upon for medical care, income, or housing needs. We are familiar with these trusts and assist clients in various situations where the client has received money from a personal injury settlement, inheritance, or newly discovered asset.

Varies case-by-case. Fees will be known at the end of the initial consultation.

Other Services

Probate and Trust Administration


If a loved one has passed and you’ve been designated as the trustee or executor of an estate, TuckerAllen can help guide you through the process or assume many of the responsibilities. While
fees vary according to the scope of the estate, TuckerAllen fees in the greater St. Louis area are the lesser of the Missouri statutory fees or our hourly rates for uncontested matters.

Varies case-by-case. Fees will be known at the end of the initial consultation.

Guardianship & Conservatorship


When a minor or adult has been legally determined to be incapacitated or disabled, the court appoints a guardian (responsible for care and custody) and a conservator (responsible for managing property – could be a person or a corporation, such as a bank or trust company). Often the same individual is appointed for both. TuckerAllen can arrange for a capacity assessment of the disabled individual and help you petition the court to be appointed as guardian and/or conservator.

Varies case-by-case. Fees will be known at the end of the initial consultation.

Single Document Creation or Document Updating


Preparing an additional single document or updates to a single document (more than a minor change) created by TuckerAllen.

$250

Deed Filing


Filing of Beneficiary Deed or Transfer on Death instrument with Recorder of Deeds office, or drafting additional deeds.
