Build A More Secure Financial Future

At The Arc Oregon, we believe planning for the future is a critical part of caring for a loved one with a disability. The Oregon Special Needs Trust (OSNT) is a pooled trust established to offer families a dependable, affordable way to provide financial security and an enhanced quality of life for their loved ones, while preserving the benefits that they depend on in their daily lives. Since its inception in 1999, the OSNT program has also become an effective means of safeguarding money for individuals whose own resources threaten their ongoing eligibility for public benefits.

What is a Special Needs Trust?

A special needs trust is a federally approved way for people with disabilities to protect benefits while still maintaining assets over the $2,000 limit required for most government benefits.

How Do I Enroll?

Establishing a special needs trust requires significant thought to make sure it is the right answer for your specific needs. We will work closely with you and your advisors to walk through the process together.

Why Should I Choose OSNT?

As the only Oregon-based pooled trust for over 20 years, we are committed to providing high-quality, personalized services that meet your needs. We strive to be the first and best choice in Oregon.
