Special Needs Trusts in Boca Raton

When someone with a disability receives SSI or medicare, there is a limit on their savings and income. If they get an inheritance or any large lump sum of money, this can put their benefits in jeopardy. Using a special needs trust as part of an overall estate plan ensures this does not happen.

A special needs trust is a particular type of trust that holds funds for the benefit of your loved one with a disability and manages the money on their behalf. Since they won’t have direct control over the funds, they remain eligible to receive medicare and SSI benefits.

What can a Special Needs Trust pay for?

The funds in a special needs trust are discretionary, and while the beneficiary does not have control over how they are used, the trustee can use the money for the beneficiaries benefit on a variety of expenses.

Common goods and services paid for by a special needs trust includes things like education and books, vacations or travel, clothing, household furnishings, and personal care items.

The trust can pay for all of these items and more, while still allowing the beneficiary to receive SSI and medicare to pay for medical care and housing.
