Special Needs Trust

A special needs trust allows appointment of a person to hold money and property for the benefit of a physically or mentally disabled individual. This type of trust provides for the needs of a disabled individual while ensuring eligibility for Social Security and Medicaid is maintained. They are usually funded by insurance policy proceeds (a parent dies and the life insurance is left to the disabled child), inheritances, gifts of property and money from family and friends, and settlements from lawsuits. Ultimately, special needs trusts are a very important tool for families of disabled children and siblings, as well families of disabled elderly parents.
