Special Disability Trusts

A Special Disability Trust is something that can be set up by parents and family members to pay for the care, accommodation and other needs of a person who has a significant disability during their lifetime.

Why set up a Special Disability Trust

Raising a child with a disability comes with the added concern about what would happen to them if you are not around to care for them.

A Special Disability Trust provides peace of mind that a loved one who has a disability will be financially secure and have all of their most important needs met into the future.

Under the Social Security Act 1991, this type of trust can be established with assets up to a certain amount for a severely disabled person without any impact on their social security benefits.
