Summary

Persons with special needs are in an extremely vulnerable position where they are potentially subject to financial abuse by rogues. Unfortunately, policy makers and scholars have not given this problem sufficient consideration. Drawing from the Singapore experience, this chapter explores the financial planning mechanisms available to persons with special needs which currently exist through legislation and various government and non-profit initiatives. It then considers several case studies of financial abuse of persons with special needs to expose the potential systemic weaknesses in the current regime. The aim of the chapter is to provoke a conversation on how societies can do better by enacting laws and implementing schemes to prevent financial abuse of persons with special needs.
