What expenses can the trust pay?

The trust can be used in many ways to enrich the quality of life of the Beneficiary.  The trust can pay for clothing, computer equipment, furniture, dental care, eye exams and eye glasses, vocational training or other educational expenses, and transportation.  Also see “How Can Funds from the Trust be Used”.

The trust must be used for the sole benefit of the Beneficiary.

For a Beneficiary who receives SSI and/or Medicaid, it is the responsibility of CCT to preserve these benefits.  CCT follows the rules of government agencies for pooled trust organizations.  Disbursements are not made that would duplicate what benefit programs are providing, such as food and shelter for SSI recipients, as these disbursements would affect benefits.
