Have you been meaning to set aside money for that person but don’t know how? With seed funding provided by the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles, we have launched a Pooled Special Needs Trust which will provide supplemental financial support over and above government benefits, and peace of mind for you. Our Pooled Special Needs Trust helps to ensure that children and adults with disabilities are able to obtain the highest possible quality of life, by leveraging the power of pooled investments to assist with financial security. Pooled Special Needs Trusts are an excellent, affordable alternative to stand-alone special needs trusts for families who want to set aside some money for their loved one with a disability but can’t afford the costly set-up and annual fees associated with a stand-alone trust, and are also seeking a trustee who understands the needs of people with disabilities and also has in-depth knowledge of the local community. read less
