Special Needs Trust

A special needs trust, sometimes called a “supplemental needs trust,” makes it possible to appoint a trustee to hold property for the benefit of a disabled person. A special needs trust provides for the needs of a disabled person without disqualifying him or her from benefits received from government programs such as Social Security and Medicaid. An attorney can assist in developing this type of trust.
