Pooled Trust - Resources of $250K+ 

Community Trust III - Asset Protection Trust

Do you have resources (assets) of $250,000 or more that you need to protect in order to qualify or maintain eligibility for Medicaid and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI)? Such as proceeds from a settlement or the sale of a home? NYSARC's Community Trust III is a pooled supplemental needs trust that may be funded with a lump sum or structured settlement.

The minimum initial deposit is $250,000. This trust allows for a potential remainder beneficiary after State(s) payback. The distribution of funds remaining upon the death of the individual is dependent on the size of the account and the existing Medicaid lien. Please refer to the trust document for more details.
