Special Needs Trusts

CONSULT WITH OUR ESTATE PLANNING ATTORNEY NOW

When a Special Needs Trust is established by you or someone other than the disabled person and the disabled person does not have the legal right to demand the trust assets, the trust is not considered a “countable resource” for purposes of government benefits. A Special Needs Trust gives the Trustee the discretion to make distributions to the beneficiary to the fullest extent possible without reducing benefits, and trust assets are available if the beneficiary no longer qualifies for governmental assistance or that assistance is no longer available to the beneficiary.
