Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why Visible National TrustSM?Financial security and stability in the US for people with disabilities and their families is a known, large-scale problem that plays a key role in the the “disability wealth gap.” Visible National Trust helps close that gap.
How big is this disability wealth gap?Worldwide, there are more than 1 billion people with disabilities, according to the UN. In the US, the CDC reports that one in four people have a disability. The cost of living with disability is higher than living without one, and disability benefits are available only to people who have exhausted other financial resources. As a result, it can be extremely difficult to put together a financial plan that provides funds to care of people with disabilities that simultaneously provides financial stability for caregivers and families.
How do special needs trusts help?Special needs trusts are an important financial tool for people with disabilities and their families. This type of trust safeguards lifetime access to income and asset-sensitive medical and disability benefits by ensuring that assets are held in a fully compliant trust and that trust distributions comply with program requirements. They also ensure that funds are set aside and used specifically for the care of the disabled beneficiary.
