The Benefits of a Third-Party Special Needs Trust

In a third-party special needs trust, you can provide a loved one with assets without jeopardizing their ability to maintain government benefits. While this is a significantly beneficial aspect of a third-party special needs trust, it’s not the only benefit.

If you are in a position to establish a special needs trust for your loved one, you should recognize what benefits there are. Our team can also help you with your options and personalize a plan that fits your loved one’s needs.

How You and Your Loved One Benefit

Of course, the most helpful aspect of a special needs trust is the ability to provide your disabled loved one with additional funds and assets without impacting governmental benefits. However, there are other benefits to consider as well:

  • The trust can serve as a beneficiary for real estate, investments, inheritance, life insurance policies, and more.
  • The trust funds are available for nearly any need that the beneficiary has and supplements the government benefits they already receive.
  • The trust doesn’t have limits regarding the size of the trust or the age.
  • The trust is not susceptible to reimbursement to government aid, and the government has no claim to these assets.

A specific person or donor will set up a third-party special needs trust that serves to benefit the individual with special needs while the donor is alive and upon his or her death. It ensures long-term security and financial resources for someone with special needs without impacting eligibility to receive Medicaid, SSI, SSDI, and other governmental benefits.
