Pooled trusts in New York allow individuals to protect eligibility for public financial assistance, such as Medicaid home care and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), while preserving their income and resources in trusts that can be used to pay for supplemental needs not covered by public assistance. In addition, since funds in these types of trusts are pooled for investment and management purposes, beneficiaries in pooled trusts can receive higher interest rates and other financial advantages.

Funds in pooled trusts can be used for all of the following and more:

  • Living expenses such as food, shelter, and clothing for non-SSI beneficiaries
  • Housing costs like rent, real estate taxes, and utilities
  • Supplemental nursing care
  • Private pay care services
  • Medical procedures and care not provided by government assistance
  • Travel expenses and entertainment
  • Guardian and attorney fees
