  • CCT Consultation Fee – 0.50% per year*, prorated on a monthly basis
  • CCT Termination Fee – $500, only applied if the Beneficiary passes away or if the trust is moved to a different fiduciary

The Trust Company of Virginia (TCVA) has fiduciary responsibility for both managing and investing the funds.

  • The minimum initial funding is $5,000 or greater.
  • Checks can be made payable to TCVA, trustee for CCT, fbo (Beneficiary Name) for additional deposits to the beneficiary’s subaccount at any time.

  • Additional fees may be charged by the Medicare Set-Aside Administrator.

CCT and TCVA reserve the right to change the above fees.
