Pooled Special Needs Trusts Ratings

May 26, 2021, 1 PM EST

SNFSi’s goal as an independent research organization is to expand the use of financial products for people with disabilities. Later this month, as planned, we will issue our first annual ratings of PSNT administrators. These ratings use SNFSi’s research framework, which considers factors including organizational and financial sustainability, governance and leadership, client service model, fees, and social responsibility.

We invite PSNTs and anyone interested in special needs financial services to join us for this call, where we’ll review the research and rating framework in depth, answer questions, and share information about the results of the ratings
