What is a Pooled Special Needs Trust?

A pooled special needs trust allows an individual access to financial resources to enhance their life while safeguarding public benefits that provide access to vital services.  Administered by a non-profit, a pooled trust combines the assets of many individuals for investment purposes while maintaining individual accounts for beneficiary.

The Arc Master Trust offers families and people of all disabilities an experienced, professional option for special needs trust administration at an affordable price, allowing resources to be saved and easily used for qualified disability and personal expenses.
