TUCSON, Ariz., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- New York attorney and Special Needs Alliance (SNA) member Bernard A. Krooks will appear tomorrow on Good Morning America NOW -- the third-hour of ABC's successful morning show Good Morning America. He will discuss tax planning tips for individuals with special needs and their families, and will be joined on the set by a Connecticut family with three children with autism.
Good Morning America NOW is available through the ABC News Now digital network, and reaches more than 30 million viewers.
"In light of the cutbacks in public benefits and insurance companies' unwillingness to pay for many medical expenses, maximizing the tax benefits available to families with children with special needs takes on increased importance," Krooks says.
According to Krooks, the SNA is in a unique position -- given the alliance's dedicated efforts in the disciplines of special needs planning and disability law -- to disseminate useful information to parents and caregivers who would not otherwise come by it, and this has contributed to the SNA's recent national exposure.
"The SNA and our members act as a resource to those in the disability community," Krooks said. "As a not-for-profit organization comprised of attorneys who can join the SNA only by invitation, we are in the best position to help families with these complex issues."
