A special needs trust may be created to ensure that your mentally or physically disabled child who is or may be receiving government benefits does not lose eligibility for this vital assistance.
A special needs trust can be created in your will so that a disabled beneficiary’s inheritance is managed by a trustee of your choosing. The rules governing the proper use of special needs trust funds are complex. This office can provide advise and guidance to the trustee to ensure compliance with the regulations governing special needs trust distributions.
A special needs trust can also be established to receive compensation from a settlement. This situation is common if an individual has been injured by the negligence of another and has secured a monetary settlement or judgment from that party.

A trust enables you to specify conditions to receive payments and allow you to spread benefit payments over a period of time. Trusts fall into two broad categories:
- Testamentary trusts transfer property into the trust only after the grantor’s death.
- Living trusts, or “inter vivos” trusts, start during the life of the grantor and can be designed to continue after death.
