Supplemental Needs Pooled Trusts
The AHRC Foundation established its Community Trust Services which allows people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to have their own trust fund to provide for their supplemental needs without affecting their eligibility for government benefits. Government benefits can include SSI, Medicaid and other public benefit programs.
A parent, relative or any other person may establish an account within the Trust and designate a person with a developmental disability as the beneficiary. A trust can also be established by beneficiary individually.
When you include Nassau County AHRC Foundation in your estate plan, your generosity helps provide a financial safety net for the Long Island IDD community to ensure high quality services are available regardless of the fiscal and/or political climate. Thank you for ensuring that AHRC Foundation can impact those we serve well into the future.
