Protect Your Loved One With A Special Needs Trust In Arizona


You may become more aware of the possibility that an adult child, who is either disabled or unable to work and receives SSI/Medicaid benefits, might never be able to care for himself/herself. 

A Special Needs Trust (SNT), can be made from money the child has either earned, such as inheritances, insurance payouts, personal injury settlements, or money donated by a third party.

What are the benefits of a Special Needs Trust?

  • An SNT allows disabled persons with assets greater than $2000 to still be eligible for SSI, MediCal, and any other government assistance that is necessary for their well-being and health.

  •  An SNT provides peace of mind for parents by ensuring that their disabled child is taken care of even if they are unable to do so.

The basic goals of a Special Needs Trust (SNT) for a disabled person are to avoid assets from being wasted and to ensure that those assets are properly cared for. 

Social security income and state-funded medical care are provided on a need-based basis to persons who are unable to earn an income due to a disability. Under social security rules and legislation, a properly created and operated SNT is a lawful and valid tool.

If you have a child that will require outside assistance throughout their lives, consult an attorney to explore the possibility of setting up a Special Needs Trust.
