Why Establish A Special Needs Trust Or Supplemental Needs Trust?

For families and friends of individuals with special needs, the primary concern is sustaining the individual financially. Not only do we want to ensure that their requirements for daily care are met, but we also want to make every effort to provide the best quality of life possible. One of the best ways to meet both goals is to establish either a Special Needs Trust or a Supplemental Needs Trust which allows a person with special needs to continue receiving government assistance for standard care while the trust money can be used for supplemental benefits such as advanced medical treatment, education, entertainment, and even vacations.

A key to success is knowing whether a Special Needs Trust or a Supplemental Needs Trust is right for the situation at hand, and this series is intended to inform readers about some of the basics and benefits of each. Because the laws and terminology involving trusts vary from state to state, it is helpful to consult with a local attorney who specializes in this area. If the Beneficiary lives outside the state of Minnesota, the special needs trust attorney will inform you about the options available for your loved one and help you take the steps necessary to safeguard their well-being.
