CCT is committed to fulfilling our mission of providing people with disabilities and their families a convenient, cost-effective framework for the administration of both third-party and self-funded pooled Special Needs Trusts that supplement Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid.   We strive to educate families, people with disabilities, and professionals about the benefits of special needs trusts.

Our top priorities continue to be working closely with clients and professionals in setting up special needs trusts along with providing responsive trust administration services for our Beneficiaries and their Advocates.
