Planning ahead for your child is never easy, more so when you are not around. It is even more difficult if your child is a special child or disabled or suffering from a major illness. How can you ensure that your child will be taken care of when you are not around?
When planning, you may wish to consider the few points below:-
- Who will take care of your child should you become critically ill or permanently disabled?
- Would your special child be able to fend for himself when you are no longer around?
- If your child needs constant medical attention or is suffering from a major illness, would your appointed Guardian have the time and resources to provide such attention taking into account that he/she is working or has a family of his/her own?
- Does your child need nursing care in the comfort of his/her home? How do you ensure there is continuous nursing care for your child upon your demise?
- How do you ensure your special child gets the proper medication, education and upbringing?
- What is the cost to take care of a special child?
- Is the Guardian able to provide full attention to a special child?
- What are the financial resources of the Guardian like?
- Can the Guardian afford to pay for the school fees for the special child?
- Who will make sure the funds that you have allocated for your child is well managed?

Upon the happening of an event, for example your demise, the Trust Fund will be utilized for the child according to your instructions.
