Commonwealth Community Trust (CCT) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that administers affordable and efficient Pooled Special Needs Trusts (PSNT).  Our clients with special needs are served throughout the United States.

CCT was founded in 1990 by parents who have a son or daughter with special needs, along with concerned professionals.

CCT is managed by a Board of Directors who serves with a caring heart and without compensation.  The Board is comprised of at least two members who are related to an individual with special needs, legal and financial professionals, and experts who work in the special needs field.

Staff members are professionals who are knowledgeable about trust administration and the rules governing Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid for clients who receive these means-tested government benefits.

  • Provide people with special needs who live throughout the United States, and their families, a convenient, cost-effective framework for the administration of both Third-Party and First-Party Pooled Special Needs Trusts that supplement government entitlement programs such SSI and Medicaid.
  • Educate families, people with special needs, and professionals about the benefits of a pooled special need trust.
