Future Planning

Future-Planning-300x200The Arc Master Trust and The Arc of Indiana know that planning for the future is critical for individuals with disabilities.  Whether you are a family member, a person with a disability, an attorney or a professional in the field of disabilities – we’re here to help.

The Arc Master Trust includes two trust programs:

Trust I

Established in 1988, Trust I helps families provide for the financial future of their loved one without affecting eligibility for government benefits such as SSI, SSDI, Medicaid and Food Stamps.

Trust II

Established in 1995, Trust II allows people with disabilities to save their own money in a trust – often with funds received through an inheritance, back payment from social security, or a personal injury settlement – allowing them to maintain eligibility for government benefits. Funds can be used for qualified disability expenses and more.

The Arc of Indiana was established in 1956 by parents of children with intellectual and other developmental disabilities who joined together to build a better and more accepting world for their children.

As strong advocates for education, employment, and community and residential services for people with disabilities, we are a resource for information on where and how to apply for government programs, as well as how to connect with others in communities throughout Indiana to build community connections and natural systems of support.
