What are the Different Types of Special Needs Trusts?

special needs trust

Special needs trusts are set up to benefit persons who are minors, mentally/physically disabled, or suffer from long-term illnesses that render them unable to carry on fiduciary activities.

These trusts provide a way to protect assets and can be seen as “asset reservoirs.”  The disabled person may receive an inheritance or an accident benefit settlement, or contributions from well-wishers.

Government programs are designed for people whose income is too low to support their needs. Hence, a person with a disability who has an income above the specified limit will not be eligible to receive these benefits.
