Special disability trusts

Special disability trusts provide a way for parents and immediate family members to plan for the future accommodation and care of a person with a severe disability.

Special disability trust income is taxed at the beneficiary's income tax rate rather than at the highest marginal tax rate.

Establishing a trust can provide other financial benefits, for both contributors to the trust as well as the trust's beneficiary.
