If you are disabled and receive benefits and a personal injury award
and or inheritance and you do not want to be disqualified from
government benefits a “self-settled” trust can help. A “self –settled” trust
is frequently created by individuals who have become disabled as a result
of an accident or medical malpractice and later receive a personal injury
award or settlement. This type of trust has specific requirements in order
to keep your government benefits such as Medicaid, Social Security, and
Section 8 Housing.
