Can you place the proceeds from a personal injury action in a Special Needs Trust?

Yes. In fact, this is a very common use of first-party SNT’s. We often work with personal injury law firms to assist with the creation of first party SNT’s to receive either lump sum payments or annuity payments from personal injury lawsuits. By doing so, the beneficiary would not lose his or her crucial Medicaid benefits.
