Pooled Trust – A pooled trust is an irrevocable supplemental needs trust (SNT) that, under Federal and New York statute, allows people with disabilities and older adults seeking long-term care services to spend down excess funds in order to qualify financially or maintain eligibility for government benefits, such as Medicaid and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).  More information click here.

A pooled income trust is a type of Supplemental Needs Trust operated by a non-profit organization for the benefit of many people with disabilities. There are many Pooled SNTs in New York, with different minimum deposits, fees, and policies. Thus, the process of enrolling in a pooled trust varies by organization.  More information click here.
