Can I Transfer My Home To My Special Needs Trust?

In this article, our DuPage County special needs attorneys discuss the process of adding a home to a Special Needs Trust and the benefits from not counting it as an asset when calculating Supplemental Security Income. We explain the types of items that Special Needs Trust are allowed to pay for and what isn't allowed under the rules. SSI can be used to pay for groceries, shelter, utilities and mortgage payments, so in effect, money from a trust cannot be used for these.

Supplemental Needs Trusts Explained

Our friendly DuPage County special needs attorneys can work with you and your family to establish a Supplemental Needs Trust, also known as a Special Needs Trust, to allow you or a disabled loved one to accumulate assets, own property, earn an income, and receive gifts and inheritances without reducing or jeopardizing his or her government benefits. 

If you or a family member is receiving government benefits based on a disability, you are probably aware that there are limits to a number of assets you can own as well as to the amount of monthly income you can receive without reducing your benefits.  

However, this does not mean that you need to live below the poverty line in order to continue to receive government benefits.  A Special Needs Trust can allow you or your loved ones to maintain a decent standard of living without reducing your benefits.
