|Planning for our elder years means making decisions about things that are not always easy to think about. Being prepared should we ever become disabled or require long-term care, clarifying our wishes for end-of-life care, and deciding how our estate should be administered after we die are difficult yet important issues we all need to face as we get older. We help our clients plan for a secure future for themselves and their loved ones.
We help our clients get the full benefit of the law as it applies to long-term care planning, asset protection, and achieving greater independence.
||Eligibility for public benefits such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid can be critical for the well-being of individuals with disabilities. Without proper planning, an inheritance or litigation settlement could soon be gone if it must be spent paying for medical care or basic living expenses that would otherwise be covered by government benefits. A special needs trust is one way to protect eligibility for public benefits and allow the additional funds to be used for a higher quality of life.
We work with families with a loved one with special needs, as well as with trial attorneys and their clients, to protect eligibility for SSI, Medicaid, and other government benefits.
