Special Needs and Disability Trustee Services
A first-party disability trust is also called a first-party special needs or supplemental needs trust. It is funded by the individual’s own assets and is used for their personal benefit.
Third-Party Special Needs Trusts
A third-party disability trust is created by family or friends to provide for the wellbeing of an individual with disabilities. It can be funded with assets from any source except the beneficiary’s own. This ensures eligibility for public benefits like Medicare and Supplemental Security Income while maintaing quality of life.
