What Are The Benefits Of A Special Needs Trust?

A special needs trust is a type of trust ideally suited to meet the needs of families with a child or family member who has a disability or special needs. There are several benefits to creating this type of trust:

  • It allows family members the opportunity to designate money to a special needs beneficiary without jeopardizing his or her right to government benefits (such as Medicaid or Supplemental Security Income (SSI)).
  • It allows family members to improve the quality of life for a loved one with special needs by giving that individual money to be used to pay for education, travel, medical costs and much more.
  • It allows family members to designate money in a safe way to an individual who may not be able to manage his or her finances independently.

A special needs trust can be customized based on your situation and goals for the future. Our attorneys will evaluate your case from a 360-degree standpoint, so you can be assured we are considering your current and future needs.
