Special Needs Trust

What Parents Need to Know about Special Needs Trusts

A Special Needs Trust (SNT), sometimes called a Supplemental Needs Trust, is a legal arrangement in which a person or organization (like a bank) manages assets for a person with a disability. The person with the disability is called the “beneficiary” and the person who is managing the assets is the “trustee.” Many kinds of assets can be put into a trust, such as cash, stocks, bonds, and real estate. An SNT provides for the needs of a person with a disability without losing or reducing their benefits such as

Supplemental Security Income (SSI),

Medi-Cal,

In-Home Support Services (IHSS), and HUD housing assistance.

Assets in an SNT won’t be counted toward the SSI, Medi-Cal and IHSS asset limit of $2000 for an individual.
