Elder Law Answers Ep 7 19 Retirement Trusts

Elder Law Answers Ep 3 2019 Living Trusts

There are many types of trusts that can be useful depending on the client’s goals. In January, we discussed trusts in general. In February, we discussed testamentary trusts that can be designed to manage an inheritance after we have passed away. This month’s show will focus on the revocable living trust which is created for the benefit of the person creating their trust during their lifetime and it may continue on after that person’s death for the benefit of one or more beneficiaries. A major benefit of the revocable living trust is avoiding probate!

Elder Law Answers Ep12 2018

Topic: Christmas time is a season where we enjoy gathering with our family and friends to celebrate. We cherish those memories, but sometimes we notice that a loved one has deteriorated physically or mentally. Now what do we do? • Today’s society considers it healthy to have certain physical ailments because almost everybody has them, but they are definitely warning signs • Ironically, this is a very busy time for our law office because over Thanksgiving and Christmas, as the family comes together (especially if some or all of them live out of town), they haven’t realized what was going on?

Elder Law Answers Ep10 2018

Topic: Aid & Attendance Pension (established in 1952) • It is a little-known VA non-service connected disability pension that can change the lives of our wartime veterans and their surviving spouses • tax-free pension that helps defray the cost of caring for elderly veterans and their dependents who cannot care for themselves • Most veterans don’t think they can qualify because they have never qualified for or applied for any VA benefits or that they were not actually in a war zone Background: We used to talk about this quite a bit on the radio show, but due to proposed sweeping changes to the rules that affected a number of areas including net worth, asset transfers, medical expenses and income deductions we were in a period of uncertainty. We found inconsistencies in the review process. Some applications were being denied based on the new rules – which they shouldn’t have been, while others went through. • After the proposed rules were published, they met a lot of oppositio...

Elder Law Answers Ep 8 18 Importance Of A Will

The majority of our listeners probably don’t have a will, how do we know this? Every survey we find tells us they don’t: • A 2009 survey found that almost 75% of parents do not have a will. • A 2014 survey of 2,000 adults found 64% of those surveyed did not have a will • A 2017 survey found only 44% of adults have a will

Elder Law Answers Ep 05 2018 Medicaid - Real Life Examples

We always mention nursing homes, the high cost of care, and Medicaid. But many people really don’t understand how all of this ties together. Today, we are going to discuss some real life examples of clients we’ve worked with. Obviously, we can’t share actual client’s names, but we can share enough of the stories for our listeners to get a better understanding! Basics – Healthcare insurance such as Medicare or your Medicare Supplemental policy will not pay for long term care (nursing home) – at most it may pay for up to 100 days. LTC insurance products that are substantially more expensive may pay for a portion of this care. Easy way to remember “Medicare doesn’t care anymore if you need LTC”; what you’d need after Medicare is private pay, LTC ins., or Medicaid Home & car = exempt during your life (and your spouse’s) Crisis Planning – when a person hasn’t planned in advance and uses our services after loved one is in nursing home or needs one in near future (within 5 yea...
