Supplemental needs trusts and special needs trusts are trusts specially designed to provide for the support of individuals with special needs without risking their ability to qualify for government benefits, such as Medicaid (Medical Assistance), Medicare, Social Security, SSI, and others.
Why are special needs trusts important? Special needs trusts allow persons with physical or mental disabilities or a serious illness to have unlimited assets held in trust for their benefit. If a trust is properly drafted as either a supplemental or special needs trust, the government does not count the assets in it when determining whether the beneficiary qualifies for government benefits.
