• Pick a trustee you can trust to administer the special needs trust for your loved one.
  • Some trustees have the power to end the trust once it is no longer needed.
  • You should appoint a trustee that knows and understands the beneficiary’s needs, a point often overlooked.
  • Family members often serve as the trustee.

Note: You may consider performing annual audits on the trustee to make sure they are following the trust terms.
