Party SNTs are those created for the benefit of a person with a disability that
makes that person an appropriate beneficiary of a SNT and are funded with
assets belonging to someone other than the SNT's beneficiary. The easiest
example of a Third Party SNT is where parents of a child with a disability
create, as part of their own estate plan, a SNT for the benefit of their child
and provide in their estate planning documents that the child's share of the
inheritance is distributed to the SNT rather than to the child directly.
