The WNY Coalition Pooled Trust is a collaboration between Legal Services for the Elderly, Disabled, or Disadvantaged of Western New York, Inc., People Inc., and Key Bank.
In general, individuals receiving public benefits are restricted to certain income and resource levels, depending on the particular public benefits program. Access to income and/or resources over those levels can result in a loss of benefits for each month those funds are deemed to be “available.”
However, individuals with disabling conditions in certain public benefit programs have the option to deposit income and/or assets into our Pooled Supplemental Needs Trust, and, once done, those funds become exempt. The trustees oversee the assets and all distributions from the trust. For more information please visit www.wnypooledtrust.org
