The Arc of Texas Master Pooled Trust

No one with a disability should have to live in poverty to meet eligibility requirements for critical government benefits. That’s why we established The Arc of Texas Master Pooled Trust in 1997. This special needs trust fosters independence, aids quality of life, and safeguards the financial future of Texans with a disability.

A vital solution for managing funds while preserving eligibility for government benefits, our Master Pooled Trust operates with pre-approval from the Social Security Administration and the Texas Department of Health and Human Services.
