PLAN of CT Professional Member Attorneys understand the needs of families that have a loved one with disabilities. PLAN of CT currently partners with over 180 attorneys across the state. Explore our interactive map to find a PLAN Professional Member local to you.

After meeting with the Outreach Coordinator, families interested in establishing a PLAN of CT Special Needs Trust will next want to determine which Professional Member Attorney is the best fit for your family. We encourage you to contact these attorneys directly regarding their area of practice.

Some questions to consider asking Professional Members prior to a consultation:

      “What area of law do you and your firm specialize in?”

      “How often do you complete Pooled, Self-Settled, or 3rd Party trusts?” 

–      “What are the fees associated with trust completion at your firm?”

Resources for Families

Third Party Trusts

A Third Party Special Needs Trust is most often established by the parents/guardians of an individual with a disability, although it can be established by anyone on behalf of this individual. The trust can be funded at any time after establishment, but most commonly funds come from the grantor’s estate after passing.

Pooled Trusts

The Pooled Special Needs Trust is the only trust in CT that an individual over 65 can contribute their own income or assets into in order to retain a lifetime benefit from those assets/income, and still qualify for public benefits like Medicaid or waiver programs.

Charitable Trust Grants

The PLAN of CT Charitable Trust is a fund which allows individuals of any age who have a disability to apply for one-time needs-based assistance through a grant to purchase a service or resource meant to enhance the individual’s quality of life.

Self-Settled Trusts

A Self-Settled Special Needs Trust is used when a disabled individual under 65 receives a direct inheritance, a back payment from Social Security, a settlement, or a lottery win that would affect their eligibility for state or federal benefits. A Self-Settled trust can protect these assets as well as entitlement eligibility.

"PLAN of Connecticut has been our Son Chad’s trust for over 20+ years now. PLAN has been great in helping to provide items to make life's challenges easier for Chad. We are able to bring Chad to his doctor appointments and on vacations because they got us an adaptable van. It is a relief to know that PLAN can help us when Chad is in need for medical supplies or even just items for enjoyment. Everyone at PLAN is always pleasant to talk with and compassionate. We couldn't ask for a better trust."

"I've been working with The Plan of CT for a little over a year.  When I first started I had numerous questions and concerns on how the whole process worked.  Everyone at the Plan of CT I encountered not only answered my questions, but did so in a very professional and patient way. Prior to joining the PLAN of CT I had used my own spreadsheet that worked for me to keep track of expenses and payments.  Because they welcomed my spreadsheet it saved me significant time not having to learn a new system. I would highly recommend The PLAN of CT."
