Special Needs Trusts safeguard personal assets, help to maintain quality of life and provide for the comforts of life that government benefits do not cover – all without jeopardizing eligibility for government assistance.

What is a Special Needs Trust?

A Special Needs Trust is a legal contract under Federal law in which someone (called a “trustee”) agrees to hold assets (money and/or property) for the benefit of a person living with a disability.

This type of Trust provides available financial resources to pay for items and services government benefits do not cover.

Trust funds can be used to pay for non-essential items and services such as companion care; entertainment; educational classes; additional therapy; alternative therapies such as chiropractic care, massage, and warm-water therapy; electronic equipment and some medications.
