A special needs trust is one established for a severely disabled person.  The trust is designed to supplement public assistance the beneficiary receives without rendering the beneficiary ineligible for that public assistance.  This decision holds that the trustee has discretion under a special needs trust to pay for goods and services for the beneficiary that are not supplied by public assistance but are also not related to remediating or making up for the disability from which the beneficiary suffers.  The special needs trust allows the trustee to pay for maintaining the beneficiary’s good health, safety, and welfare, which includes more than just expenses arising from the beneficiary’s disability.
