Special Needs Trust Program Overview

The Foundation of the Arc of Northern Virginia’s (The Foundation) Special Needs Trust (SNT) Program enables families to plan for the future and people with disabilities to derive the greatest possible benefit from family money, settlements, financial gifts, and other awards of money and assets, in addition to any public benefits to which they have entitlement. By appropriately using their SNTs, government benefits are not jeopardized. Many families and individuals with disabilities also use the SNTs for money management and budgeting purposes.

For seventeen years, The Foundation has been managing the SNT Program and offering two types of SNTs.  As experts in the field of disabilities, we offer accessible and friendly day-to-day client relations.  The Foundation acts as the Trust Manager and our partner, Key Private Bank, functions as the Trustee. The Foundation offers continuity, reliability, and expertise in providing trust management services, while Key Private Bank takes on the role of Trustee with fiduciary responsibilities.

Our unique program is easy and comfortable for people of all disabilities throughout Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC.  Referred to by respected attorneys in VA, MD, and DC as well as numerous families and clients, our SNT Program is healthy and growing.
