Henson Trust

by Julie
(Thornhill, ON Canada)

About 10 years ago my husband and I did our wills with a law firm that I worked for at the time (they did it for free).

They are a well known and reputable firm. This was before we had our disabled child. I asked them to do a Henson Trust and they have given it to me to sign.

The problem is, I don't understand it so I don't know if it is good or not. Is this a standard type of Trust that is pretty much the same no matter what firm you go with or should it only be done by people who have experience with disability law?

I have been putting off signing it because I want to make sure it is good for her and for us.

There is a standard Henson Trust that is recognized by the ODSP. I would be pleased to look at the will if you wish. Simply email a copy to me and I'll let you know if it is a Henson Trust.
