FINANCIAL PLANNING

Henson Trusts

A Henson Trust is a trust created to benefit a person with a disability. It ensures that a person with a disability cannot be cut off from benefits if they’re receiving money from a trust created to help them. The trust requires that the designated trustee have complete control over financial disbursements from the trust. To learn more, Autism Ontario has compiled a helpful guide about creating a Henson Trust (though Henson Trusts aren’t limited to those with Autism). Learn more about Henson Trusts. 

Special Needs Planning Group

This organization provides financial planning information and solutions for individuals and families of people with disabilities. They’re a great resource on Henson Trusts and the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP). Learn more about Special Needs Planning Group.
