Thank you for your interest in the webinar Unique Issues for Special Needs Trust in California and CalABLE with Stephen W. Dale, Esq. and Dante Allen, CalABLE Executive Director which was presented on April 16 at as part of the Golden State Pooled Trust MCLE on Essentials of Disability Advocacy. Dante discussed the basics of the ABLE Act and how practitioners can partner with CalABLE, and Steve through a series of case studies discussed how a special needs trust tied to an ABLE Account can get the best of all worlds in many cases.
