A self-settled discretionary spendthrift (SSDS) trust is an irrevocable trust in which the settlor is allowed to designate himself a discretionary beneficiary or be so named later. The settlor may achieve a range of benefits, including the potential to access the trust’s assets, while certain creditors may have greater difficulty seizing the trust’s assets.
