SSDI and Medicaid affected by non-revocable trust distributions

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 08/06/2016 - 16:12

Hello all,

Can anyone point me to any information that would tell how distributions of funds from a non-revocable trust to a SSDI/Medicaid recipient would affect their benefits?

Thank you!

To ensure your benefits any funds distributed would need to be placed in (special needs) trust for you.

Hi there,
Thanks for sharing! It's true, a special needs trust can help protect an SSI recipient from running into the financial resource limit for SSI.

Hi Chris,
If you're receiving SSDI benefits, then it may not have any effect if it is considered unearned income.
