Special Needs Trust
 
A Special Needs Trust provides people with disabilities the opportunity to have a trust fund that will not jeopardize public entitlement benefits, such as Medicaid and SSI. A Special Needs Trust is established by the family for the benefit of their loved one with a disability. A Pooled Disability Trust is established by the person with a disability who has received a sum of money.
