Special Needs Trusts

Receipt of an inheritance by an individual that receives government benefits for a disability will likely cause that individual to become ineligible for such benefits. By leaving those assets in a Special Needs Trust, the beneficiary can maintain eligibility for public benefits, but still have the Trust assets available for services that the government will not cover.

A Special Needs Trust can be created during lifetime or through your testamentary documents such as a Will or Revocable Trust.
