Special Needs Trust Administration

Special Needs Trusts allow individuals with lifelong disabilities to set aside resources without impacting their eligibility for government benefits; including SSI and Medicaid. Congress established statutory authority for Special Needs Trusts with the passage of The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993. Funds held in trust are used to improve the beneficiary’s quality of life. Common uses of trust funds include transportation costs, counseling/therapy, medical expenses, clothing and computer and electronic equipment.
