Special Futures: A Guide to Special Needs Trusts

People with disabilities are often eligible for a number of public benefits. While programs such as Medicaid, Social Security Disability Insurance, and Supplemental Security Income provide an important safety net for disabled individuals without other sources of support, they often only cover the bare minimum. As the parent of a child with Down syndrome, autism, or a physical disability, you want your child to do more than get by—you want her to be able to thrive. With a special needs trust, you may be able to make that happen.

When you set aside money in a trust that can be used to enrich her life after you are gone, you will get the peace of mind you need to enjoy your time with her rather than worrying about the future.
