The Disability Foundation
Did you know that naming an individual with disabilities in your will could cause him or her to lose Medicaid or SSI benefits?
Governmental benefits also are at risk if the individual with disabilities receives a lump sum of money, such as from a personal injury settlement, back payment from Social Security or even lottery winnings.
Thanks to The Disability Foundation, established in 1998 as a supporting organization of The Dayton Foundation, you can help ensure a good quality of life for your loved one with a disability and not have to make the difficult decision to disinherit him or her or risk jeopardizing important entitlements. Today, the foundation offers three pooled, disability trusts that deliver safe and affordable options for individuals and families who wish to provide supplemental services or goods for their loved one without risking Medicaid and/or SSI benefits.
