Which Special Needs Trust is Right for You?

A special needs trust is a trust tailored to a person with special needs that is designed to manage assets for that person’s benefit while not compromising access to important government benefits. There are three main types of special needs trusts:

  1. First-party trust
  2. Third-party trust
  3. Pooled trust

All three name the person with special needs as the beneficiary. A “first-party” special needs trust holds assets that belong to the person with special needs, such as an inheritance or an accident settlement. A “third-party” special needs trust holds funds belonging to other people who want to help the person with special needs. A “pooled trust” holds funds from many different beneficiaries with special needs.
