Government entitlements only go so far
Many Americans with mental or physical disabilities depend upon government entitlements such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to provide for their financial needs. However, these financial resources are often insufficient to cover their day-to-day living expenses. Individuals with disabilities also face the costs of increased medical bills and special medical equipment and supplies not supplied by government programs.
Special Needs Trusts are specifically designed for individuals with disabilities from children t0 the elderly. A special needs trust provides a way to improve the quality of life of the disabled beneficiary without jeopardizing current or future eligibility for means-tested benefits such as SSI and Medicaid.
However, because of resource limitations, financial assistance including gifts and inheritance from family and friends, can adversely affect the disabled individual’s eligibility for Medicaid and SSI. The current resource limit for Medicaid and SSI benefits is anything in excess of $2,000.
Alabama Family Trust works hard to better the lives of those with special needs.
