We Answer Questions About Eligibility and the Application Process
Seniors aged 65 and older who need long-term care may be eligible for Medicaid assistance. Many people are surprised to learn that Medicaid is available to middle-income, as well as low-income seniors. The cost of home care, assisted living, or nursing home care can easily consume a lifetime of savings. Careful Medicaid planning enables you to take charge of your future and avoid this calamity. However, applying for Medicaid is complicated. New Jersey has a look-back period requiring financial statements from five years prior. Our skilled Lakewood Medicaid attorneys have assisted many seniors with the application process and can help you obtain Medicaid benefits by developing a comprehensive plan. This may include the use of wills and trusts, including careful implementation of tax-saving strategies. If you or a family member needs long-term care, arrange a consultation regarding Medicaid planning.
We Help You Plan for Tomorrow
Our Lakewood attorneys are skilled in providing professional legal counsel regarding both estate planning and elder law:
- Estate planning concentrates on the future, specifically how someone’s property will be distributed after they die. It can be viewed as a preventative measure that gives families peace of mind.
- Elder law focuses on the present, including how to leverage wealth while a person is alive.
Obtaining legal advice in both areas can help save you money, time, and energy. Estate planning involves difficult choices regarding who will be the beneficiaries of property. However, a poorly worded will that does not spell out your wishes clearly can lead to family disputes and unnecessary legal battles. Our compassionate estate planning lawyers can help you make necessary decisions that will enable your family to avoid the burden of litigation down the road.
Establishing trusts and drafting advanced directives, including health care proxies, powers of attorney, and living wills can help protect the health and well-being of seniors that may become incapacitated. Korsinsky & Klein, LLP can help you determine which types of directives and trusts can best accomplish your objectives.
