Using Asset Preservation Planning to Gain Eligibility

There are many cases in which an elder does not qualify for Public Benefits but cannot feasibly afford long-term care on their own all the same. If the margin of disqualification is slim, then it might be possible to gain eligibility through proper planning, which can be comprised of elder law and estate planning aspects. The goal of Asset Preservation and Public Benefits planning of this nature is reducing the estate or assets of an elder to the point they gain Medicaid eligibility. We will want to sit down with you, get to know your situation thoroughly, and come up with a personalized approach that meets your needs and expectations.
