Special Needs Trust

A family’s resources can quickly be depleted when caring for an individual with a disability (the “beneficiary”) who may have many medical needs, and for whom it may be difficult or impossible to find sufficient medical insurance. For most families it is crucial for the beneficiary to become eligible and maintain eligibility for SSI, Medicaid, Medicaid Waiver, and similar programs. These programs provide funds for basic support in addition to medical coverage, and may also provide services such as case management, therapies and support services, residential facilities, day programs, job training, and job support.
