Planning Now Can Protect Your Estate from Probate and Medicaid
In Southern Illinois, the cost of long-term care can range from $45,000 to $100,000 a year. Without proper planning, this can easily erase assets earned over a lifetime. Fortunately, State and Federal Laws provide a variety of options to help.
This seminar will discuss the new VA regulations that went into effect on October 18, 2019, that now require a 3-year look back on asset transfer and how this affects the Veteran’s Aid and Attendance program.
Information also will be presented that discusses how to protect your estate from the probate process.
In this seminar, you will learn:
- How Living Trusts avoid probate and why Last Will and Testaments don’t.
- How your Durable Healthcare Power of Attorney, Living Will and the new HIPAA Release must work together.
- What blended families (her kids / his kids, their kids) must do to avoid disinheriting each other and/or their separate children.
- How to avoid death taxes, guarantee IRA stretch outs and plan for children and grandchildren with special needs.
- How to protect your children’s and grandchildren’s inheritances from their divorces, debts, taxes, lawsuits, medical expenses and transfers out of the bloodline.
- Why deeding your house to your children is not a good idea.
- How to protect your home and saving from $6,000-a-month nursing home bills and Medicaid if you don’t have long-term care insurance — even if you or a loved one is in a nursing home now.
- The proper estate planning documents you need to protect your estate from probate.
