You most likely have been advised to consider creating a special needs trust because you are about to receive a settlement in a mass tort action or a personal physical injury suit. In order to protect eligibility for needs based public benefits such as SSI/Medicaid, a special needs trust should be considered. While this is a difficult reality to face, turning your settlement over to a trustee of a special needs trust, it is what is required by federal/state law to remain eligible for needs based benefits. While this can be a difficult and painful decision to make, we are here to help you.
