News Alert – President Obama signed the 21st Century Cures Act into law on December 13, 2016. The Act contains numerous provisions, but one of interest to family and friends of persons with disabilities concerns special eeds trusts. It is called the “Special Needs Trust Fairness Act” and enables competent individuals who have disabilities to establish their own special needs trusts using their own funds without going to Court. It pertains to (d)(4)(A) trusts, which can be set up with the disabled person’s own funds. It receives its title from 42 U.S. Code Section 1396(d)(4)(A). Until now, a (d)(4)(A) trust, although established with the disabled person’s own funds, could only be established by a parent, grandparent, guardian or the Court. The disabled person could not establish his or her own (d)(4)(A) trust.
