Special Needs Trusts


        Barbara Lloyd Kessinger prepares Special Needs Trusts (SNTs) for the benefit of individuals with disabilities. These special trusts have provisions that can improve the quality of life of your loved ones, generally by supplementing but not replacing essential public benefits.


        Frequently, stand-alone inter vivos (living) SNTs are established. Many inter vivos SNTs are funded by third parties, either during their lifetimes or upon their deaths (hence, the name Third Party SNTs). Some inter vivos SNTs, however, are self-settled, using the disabled beneficiary’s own assets for funding (hence, the name Self-Settled SNTs). Testamentary SNTs also can, and sometimes must, be included in Wills.


        Ms. Kessinger prepares Special Needs Trusts on a regular basis and also provides guidance concerning their administration.  She offers consultation throughout Northern Virginia.
