Special needs trusts (sometimes called supplemental needs trusts) are a special type of legal mechanism which enabled assets to be held on behalf of someone with disabilities without affecting their eligibility for public benefits such as Medicaid or Supplemental Security Income. 

Special needs trusts can dramatically improve the quality of life of a disabled individual.  Butler Elder Law, P.A. is experienced in drafting these documents to comply with the strict requirements of both federal and state law, in order to provide individuals with permanent disabilities a higher quality of life.
