For the benefit of its consumers, CLC Supplemental Needs Pooled Trust was established in 1996 to enable CLC clients and/or their loved ones to set aside monies for supplemental needs without losing government benefits, such as Medicaid and SSI. Six years later, Trust participation was opened to non-CLC consumers.
With the extended life expectancies that disabled individuals can look forward to, planning for their futures has become a critical and immediate need. Therefore, families and loved ones of people with disabilities must plan today for needs that will arise next week, next month, and in years to come.
A CLC Supplemental Needs Pooled Trust can be established to provide for participants' current and future needs without ever jeopardizing their eligibility for government benefits such as Medicaid and Supplemental Social Security (SSI). CLC Trusts enable participants living with a disability to maintain eligibility for government benefits and still set aside monies in a Trust to pay for their own supplemental needs.
Funds deposited in either of the CLC Trusts are available to participants to pay for items not covered by Medicaid or SSI such as vacations, clothing, certain medical expenses, and other extras that enhance their quality of life.
