ABLE vs Special Needs Trusts: An in-depth Discussion
This brief, online workshop helps parents, guardians and family members to better understand the planning our children may need during all stages of life. Topics discussed include: 
  • Legal, Financial & Benefits Planning Considerations
  • Pros & Cons of ABLE accounts
  • Pros & Cons of Special Needs Trusts
Planning for a child with special needs goes beyond traditional financial planning. Join us from the comfort of your own home, ask questions, and talk with a fellow parent in a non-threatening, non-pressure environment. We'd love to be of help if you're ready to learn. 

Speaker: Debbie Niemann's 15-year-old daughter, Cecilia, has cerebral palsy and complex medical issues.  As a parent to a child with special needs, she understands the mentality of living one day at a time, but this approach falls short when it comes to providing a financially secure future and desired quality of life. Debbie is a financial advisor with Northwestern Mutual and has her Chartered Special Needs Consultant designation through the American College and MBA from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. Register for the webinar here.
