Learn ways to help protect your estate and assets as you grow older from an elder law attorney during this free lunchtime program.
As you grow older, it is a good idea to have your legal documents reviewed by an Elder Law Attorney. Your Will, for instance, should now have a special provision that protects your estate if your spouse is in a nursing home at the time of your death. You should also consider the use of a retained life estate on the deed to your home to ensure that your property is not put at risk if you should need Medicaid benefits to help pay for nursing home costs. A new Power of Attorney with a Statutory Gifting Rider allows your spouse or adult children to fund a trust or make other asset transfers to help qualify you for Medicaid benefits.
