Third-Party vs. First-Party or Pooled Trusts

First-party and pooled special needs trusts hold assets belonging to the person with special needs, the beneficiary. A third-party special needs trust is funded by someone other than the beneficiary, such as a family member or another loved one.

In other words, a third-party special needs trust holds assets that never belonged to the trust beneficiary. Third-party special needs trusts are often set up as a part of a donor’s estate plan, to aid the special needs individual while the donor is still alive and after he or she passes on.

What Are the Benefits of a Third-Party Special Needs Trust?

There are many benefits to be experienced with third-party special needs trusts:

  • There is no limit to the size of a third-party special needs trust.
  • A third-party special needs trust can be the beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
  • A third-party special needs trust can own real estate or investments.
  • Funds in a third-party special needs trust can be used for virtually anything the beneficiary needs.
  • A third-party special needs trust will not impact a beneficiary’s eligibility for government benefits.
  • The government has no claim to assets in a third-party special needs trust, such as reimbursement for Medicaid payments.
  • There is no age limit for establishing third-party special needs trusts.
  • Unlike first-party special needs trusts, third-party special needs trusts often do not have to be monitored by the court.
  • In the event of the beneficiary's death, the assets in a third-party special needs trust can pass to the donor's other relatives.
