Special Needs Trusts for the Rehabilitation Professional

An understanding of the importance and significant value of a First Party Funded Special Needs Trust in addressing personal injury and other settlement matters is critical for all participants in such cases. The use of such a trust can permit the continued availability of public benefits such as Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, public housing, and other resource-related benefits which can be essential for the welfare of a person with disabilities following a personal injury settlement or other receipt of significant funds. For example, the loss of Medicaid alone may cost millions of dollars to a person with disabilities over the course of a lifetime.
