First Maryland Disability Trust
First Maryland Disability Trust, Inc. (FMDT) specializes in cost-effective, special-needs disability trustee services designed to protect, manage, and use trust assets to preserve the beneficiary’s eligibility for public assistance programs.
Nonprofit FMDT was founded in 2005 by a group of disability and elder law attorneys from Maryland who recognized that public benefit programs alone could never meet all the needs of an individual with disabilities.
With a motto of “Trust Starts Here,” we partner with attorneys, financial planners, and disability advocates to create a comprehensive plan that supports the well being of the whole individual. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life, autonomy, and dignity of those Marylanders with disabilities by providing cost-effective first-party and third-party disability trust management services.
We provide pooled and stand-alone first- and third-party trusts that allow families, friends, and individuals to plan for current and future needs, while protecting eligibility for public benefits.
