Established by Certified Elder Law Attorney Timothy L. Takacs in 2000 as Tennessee's first "pooled trust" under federal law, Vista Points Special Needs Pooled Trust is a resource for individuals with disabilities and special needs and their families who want to set aside funds without risking loss of such government benefits as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid.
Unlike trusts administered by banks or for-profit trust companies, Vista Points Special Needs Pooled Trust accepts comparatively modest amounts of money. Parents of adult disabled children and personal injury lawyers who are seeking to preserve settlements for their disabled clients are assured of trust management by caring professionals who understand a beneficiary's special needs and know the law applicable to government benefits.
For individuals who are already receiving government benefits, inheritances and personal injury settlements that would otherwise result in loss of those benefits can be set aside in Vista Points Special Needs Pooled Trust.
For individuals whose resources exceed the limits set by the SSI and Medicaid programs, funds can be set aside in Vista Points Special Needs Trust to enable them to qualify for these programs.
