you need to have the trust reviewed by a lawyer. in many instances a special needs trust is not turned over to the beneficiary except by periodic payments or by payments under a special needs that supplement without duplicating benefits you are entitled to. in those cases youre neither entitled to the principle nor are you able to sell the payments to a viatical company (business that jg wentworth operates) without a lawyer reviewing your settlement documents no one can advise you.
without a detailed review by a lawyer can all the issues raised in your question be appropriately addressed...nothing in this response should be construed as establishing a lawyer client relationship..the answers herein are for informational purposes and not to be construed as advice
Basically the same answer as what you received to the identical question you posted earlier.

Yes-same answer as the first time you asked.
The answer given does not imply that an attorney-client relationship has been established and your best course of action is to have legal representation in this matter.
