By BC Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation

Summary

This government booklet describes what a trust is, what the different kinds of trusts are, who can set up a trust on someone else's behalf, how having a trust affects disability assistance, and how one can use the money in their trust without affecting disability assistance.
