Special Needs Trusts
Special needs trusts are often used to create a fund to provide goods and services not available through government assistance programs such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), while simultaneously maintaining eligibility for these critical programs. The funds in a special needs trust can be used to pay for entertainment, travel, education, accessible transportation, advanced medical and dental care, electronic equipment, ride share membership, a bus/rail pass, a car, a home, and more. In short, a special needs trust can help maximize your loved one’s quality of life.
