Volunteer attorney drafted Special Needs Trust for the disabled sister of a Marine scheduled to deploy

April 17, 2014

A Marine was scheduled to deploy to a combat zone. He named his disabled sister as his primary beneficiary in the event of his death in his will and Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance. However, the Marine needed pro bono assistance to draft a Special Needs Trust, so his disabled sister would not lose eligibility for public benefits, such as Supplement Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid, in the event of his death. The ABA Military Pro Bono Project located an attorney who volunteered to work with the Marine to draft a Special Needs Trust.
