What We Offer

We can act as administrator of Special Needs Trusts.

A disabled individual often needs to protect their current or future public benefits. In fact, assets over a certain limit can actually disqualify their benefits. The solution? Establishing a special needs or supplemental needs trust. It provides a safe harbor for the disabled individual’s assets. That way, assets aren’t counted when determining eligibility for public benefit programs.

Assets in special needs trusts can be used to pay for needs that government programs don’t cover and help improve your loved one’s quality of life. The trust can make funds available for special therapies, procedures and equipment, as well as for education, training and other items to make your loved one’s life more comfortable.


First-party Special Needs Trusts

  • May be established with a disabled individual’s own assets (typically proceeds from a lawsuit)
  • Sometimes referred to as ‘self-settled’ special needs trusts


Third-party Special Needs Trusts

  • Created and funded with assets of a person other than the disabled individual
