Seek Disability Planning Advice While You Are Healthy
People smart enough to anticipate the possibility of disability in the future have a lot of options. For example, disability insurance is most affordable when you are healthy and working, and asset transfers and trust instruments designed to protect your Medicaid eligibility work best when they are in place years before you need them.
Our attorneys also help older people make the most of what they have when the need for in-home assistance or nursing care becomes an immediate concern rather than an abstract possibility. Most people want to know about alternatives to residential nursing home placements, and our experience can help you find better ways to ensure the safety and care of people who will need extra help.
Special Needs Trusts for Individuals With Long-Term Disabilities
It is not enough to leave behind money or make generous provisions to a family member with a developmental disability or a loved one with other special needs. A better option for some families is to set up a special needs trust that will not only provide the resources your loved one will need over an indefinite period, but also protect the beneficiary's eligibility for such benefits as Supplemental Security Income or Medicaid.
Special needs trusts can provide similar benefits for you as well as for third parties. If you are on any form of means-tested government assistance, but have an expectation of an inheritance or other nonexempt assets, we can show you how to protect your own eligibility while enjoying the benefit of these personal or family resources.
