Supplemental or Special Needs Trusts (SNTs) are trusts used for disabled persons that ensure the access to extra funds (such as an inheritance or a lawsuit award) without being disqualified from governmental benefits. There are various types of SNTs including a First-Party Special Needs Trust, Third-Party Special Needs Trust and a Pooled Special Needs Trust. There are also number of factors to keep in mind when considering an SNT such as, eligibility, covered expenses and disbursement of funds when a disabled person dies. In particular, these issues are critical to understand when planning for a disabled child.
