Invest in a bright future.
What is a Community Trust?
The Georgia Community Trust is a pooled Special Needs Trust available to any Georgia resident with a disability. This is a specific kind of fund that offers individuals and their loved ones a vehicle to save money for the future needs of the beneficiary, without losing eligibility for public benefit programs such as Medicaid and SSI.
Who can set up a community trust?
Regardless of your age or your child’s age or disability, planning for the future is important. The Georgia Community Trust, managed by BDI, is a way for parents to ensure that even after they are gone, they are able to provide for their children.
Created in 1997, the Georgia Community Trust allows families to provide for a person with a disability in an estate, so that they do not disqualify from public assistance. It also ensures that these funds will be safely managed and invested.
