Special Needs Trusts

Choosing a trustee that will care for a loved one is one of the most important and difficult tasks in creating a special needs trust. Trustees must have the necessary expertise to manage the trust, including making proper investments, paying bills, maintaining accounts and preparing tax returns.


The special needs trustee must also understand how each distribution he or she makes will affect the beneficiary's public benefits. Very few people have this knowledge. At Cadence Trust and Asset Management, we have experienced trust officers with decades of experience specifically in this area ready to bring resources to bear and help relieve some of the day-to-day responsibilities from other family members.


If you’re ready to set up a special needs trust, keep track of the process with our free checklist.
