Using Special Disability Trusts in Aged Care.
Special Disability Trusts (SDT) allow family members to make financial provisions for a loved one with a disability. The Trust receives special treatment for both pension and aged care means assessments for the disabled person and can also provide benefits to the donor without breaching the gifting rules.
