What is the Springhill Pooled Accounts Trust?

Springhill Pooled Accounts Trust improves the lives of people with disabilities living in Michigan and across the country. Our experienced staff works with individuals to protect their eligibility for public benefits and manage their financial assets. As a nonprofit organization, Springhill* helps beneficiaries and their families easily access their funds to pay for expenses that improve quality of life, such as clothing, travel, electronics and more.

At Springhill, a dedicated trust coordinator will get to know you, your story, and how you’d like to use your sub-account. We also provide free enrollment consultations for potential beneficiaries, trustees, attorneys, and financial planners. Our goal is to simplify the process while complying with federal and state rules governing trusts.

Springhill is an excellent option for people with disabilities who want the reassurance of a professionally administered trust, the advantages of a pooled investment, and our exceptional personal service. We’ll handle the details so you can focus on what matters most to you.

Who is eligible?
