Since the beneficiary`s mother, as legal guardian, established the trust with funds that belonged to the beneficiary, we treat the beneficiary as if he had established the trust himself. He is therefore the settlor of the trust. Since he is also the sole beneficiary of the trust, the trust is revocable under state law and is the beneficiary`s resource, regardless of the language used in the trust document. The recipient is not eligible due to excess resources.

There are two types of Medicaid trusts to consider: suspend counting the trust as a resource for each month in which all of the above requirements are met (see SI 01120.203G.2. in this section).
