Are You Procrastinating about Writing Your Will?

Procrastination can be very costly for your loved ones. “If you die without a will, a range of state laws dictate who gets your assets, and your loved ones may get nothing. They might get kicked out of the family house and could face hefty surprise tax bills.” Click on the link below to read the Wall Street Journal article.

Don’t Lose the Family Home to Medicaid!

Without long-term care insurance or a Medicaid Asset Protection Trust, the family home can become subject to a Medicaid lien for your loved one’s nursing home or at home nursing care. “Federal law requires all states to have “estate recovery programs,” which seek reimbursements for spending under Medicaid, the joint federal and state health insurance program mainly for people with low incomes or disabilities.” Preventative estate planning will protect your family’s home and allow you to pass it down to your children. Call today for a consultation (2112-222-4175) and get peace of mind.

It’s Time to Have “The Talk”

“It is the worst thing in the world to be laying in your bed, dying, and having a lawyer ask you questions about who should get what,” Ms. Moore, 69, a sweater designer from New York City, said. “If you wait until the last minute, you’re in such a bad place.” The comments by readers reveal the heartbreaking stories of caregivers and those left behind. There’s a better way. Call my office for a consultation to discuss your personal situation.
