The MetLife Center for Special Needs PlanningSM helps you to take steps to provide lifetime quality care that your dependent with special needs requires. Planning for the future of an individual with special needs requires in-depth knowledge of the federal laws as they pertain to government benefit eligibility and legal documents such as special needs trusts and guardianships. There are important financial considerations as well for providing not just lifetime care, but quality of life.
