CPSH is receiving questions about special needs trusts:

  • Should a special needs trust own a home that a person with disabilities lives in?
  • How is a home in a special needs trust managed?
  • What are the pros and cons of having a home in a special needs trust?

This page provides you with information for you to consider.  As always, consult your attorney to make the best decisions for you and your family.
