Supplemental Needs Trusts Explained

Peoria special needs trust lawyers

Our friendly Peoria 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.
