Pooled Special Needs Trust (PSNT) Intelligence and Services: Building Connections for Growth

Disability impacts 1:7 Americans directly and touches many more lives indirectly. Lifetime costs to support a person with a disability are significant; planning, financial tools, resources, programs, and intergenerational support are all critical to a successful outcome. While 13% of the population face this situation, their need exceeds the wide availability of products, services, and support in the market today.

SNFSITM builds connections between a little-known group of providers in this space – Pooled Special Needs Trusts – and the financial services ecosystem. This includes advisors who work with people and families who can benefit from these programs, and companies and organizations who provide services to SNFSI members.

More than one hundred nonprofits around the country administer Pooled Special Needs Trusts (PSNTs), providing stewardship of beneficiary assets and other important services to people with disabilities. SNSFI™ researches, evaluates, and ranks the 100+ pooled special needs trust administrators, enabling us to provide rich, data-driven guidance to industry stakeholders.

This intelligence powers the advisory services we provide to Pooled Special Needs Trust leadership to support their work building and growing sustainable organizations. It is equally valuable to financial services and other allied professionals who would like to identify PSNT programs that best fit their clients’ and organization’s needs.

This Market for Financial Services is Hiding in Plain Sight

Disability impacts 1:7 Americans* (that is 42 million people) directly and touches many more lives indirectly. More than likely, advisors with a mature book have clients affected by special needs who wish to do as much life and financial planning as possible (perhaps even more so now), and a frustratingly small, and often prohibitively expensive, …

COVID-19 and Trusts, Foundations, Endowments, and Program Related Investments

March 19, 2020 | We were not fully prepared for this; not one of us had a COVID-19 toolkit in our desks. On the investment front though, some are better prepared than others.
