Long-term care planning for Michigan children

Many Michigan families hope for healthy and happy families with many children. They plan for the future hoping that everything will be perfect. However, things don't always go according to plan.

Long term planning for children can be an absolute necessity in certain situations, such as when children are born with special needs that require extra planning and care. Without the right plan in place, children can be left without the financial resources necessary to support themselves or the ability to get the care they need.

In Michigan there are a variety of programs that provide assistance to children. These programs have specific eligibility requirements that must be met in order for a child to receive benefits. These requirements are important for planning purposes.

For example, Michigan offers health care for certain children under the age of 19. This program -- called U-19 -- is only available for low income children. Those who qualify will receive Medicaid benefits without a premium, according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Additionally, there is the children's special health care services. This program allows some children under the age of 21 to receive healthcare benefits if they have a qualifying medical condition.

There are also federal benefits to consider. Specifically, there is the Supplemental Security Income for Children program. This program is administered by the Social Security Administration and provides benefits to low income, disabled children.

Long term planning for children and adults can be a complicated process involving a variety of public and private organizations. Whether it is Medicaid planning or trying to protect federal disability benefits, an attorney can help to create a clear picture of how these agencies fit together and how to maximize a person's future benefits.
