National Pooled Trust

The Family Network on Disabilities National Pooled Trust is about Quality of Life.

By joining the Family Network on Disabilities National Pooled Trust , persons with disabilities may be able to preserve much-needed assets and still qualify for public benefit programs. The Family Network on Disabilities National Pooled Trust is established pursuant to Federal law, which authorizes persons with disabilities to preserve their assets in this way.
The money placed in the Trust can still be used to improve a person’s quality of life. In essence, the money placed in the Trust can be used for anything that will not interfere with a person’s public benefits.

The Family Network on Disabilities National Pooled Trust is about Choice.

Choice: The ability of persons with disabilities to choose what services and products they wish to receive, rather than being told what they can receive.
The Family Network on Disabilities National Pooled Trust is based, from the ground up, on the philosophy of self-determination by persons with disabilities.
We believe that, whenever possible, persons with disabilities should make their own decisions on their care, treatment, living arrangements, and all other aspects of their lives. The Family Network on Disabilities National Pooled Trust is designed so that they can do just that.

The Family Network on Disabilities National Pooled Trust is about People.

The persons and organizations involved in the Family Network on Disabilities National Pooled Trust have a longstanding commitment to serving people with disabilities.
Serving persons with disabilities is the central purpose of the Family Network on Disabilities National Pooled Trust. The trustee, Family Network on Disabilities, Inc., serves hundreds of thousands of persons with disabilities every year.
The Family Network on Disabilities National Pooled Trust embraces all persons with disabilities, of all ages, cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds. To make the trust accessible to as many persons as possible, there is no minimum deposit required.
