Special Needs Trusts:

Special Needs Trusts (also known as "supplemental needs" trusts) allow a disabled individual to receive gifts, lawsuit settlements, or other funds and yet not lose their eligibility for certain government programs. Such trusts are drafted so that the funds will not be considered to belong to the disabled person in determining eligibility for public benefits. Special Needs Trusts are designed to pay for comforts and luxuries that are not available from public assistance not to provide basic support. These trusts typically pay for things like education, recreation, counseling, and medical attention beyond the simple necessities of life.
