JOHN, father of a trust beneficiary Virginia

I think the biggest value that we see as having The Arc of Northern Virginia as the manager is the fact that they really understand all the different needs that my son might have. And that was huge for us.

ELIZABETH, Attorney Virginia

The greatest strengths of The Arc of Northern Virginia are their experience and their expertise in the special needs arena.

They're not going to make a mistake.

The Arc's Special Needs Trust Program gives the family a break. The financial concerns, the sustainability of resources--these are huge things to worry about.  And The Arc takes that over.

Meet Our Trustee - KeyBank

KeyBank serves as Trustee of our Special Needs Trusts and handles paying bills, writing checks and ongoing investment management.

The Home You Know

KeyBank can hold real estate in a special needs trust. That helps protect a beneficiary's sense of home and their disability benefits. We are the only special needs trust program in the Washington, D.C., area that can integrate real estate among trust assets.

A Stable Future

With its various investment options, KeyBank helps meet trust portfolio investment objectives. It's a mix of financial resources and goals, risk preference and rate of return goals.

Estate Settlement

KeyBank can settle an estate as the executor, co-executor, personal representative, or co-personal representative. KeyBank will also serve as successor trustee. Our relationship with KeyBank is unique. The team works with clients to develop a focused, personalized approach to managing investments and planning for the future.
