We like to provide as much information as we possibly can to people in the greater Grand Forks area, because far too many families are going through life without the proper estate planning protection. This is largely due to a lack of understanding, so we endeavor to provide educational opportunities whenever and wherever we can.
On an electronic level, we publish a steady stream of useful information here on our blog. We have also put together an electronic library of special reports that cover many different estate planning and elder law topics. These reports are free of charge, and you can view all of the titles here: Free Estate Planning and Elder Law Reports.
Written knowledge is great, but face-to-face interaction is better. To this end we offer free seminars on an ongoing basis, and we have a couple of seminars coming up at the end of this month. The seminars are going to cover myths about wills, trusts, and Medicaid.
A last will is a commonly used estate planning document, and people sometimes harbor misconceptions about wills. You may think that a will is your only logical choice if you are not a millionaire. In fact, this is not always the case. Depending on your family dynamic, your objectives, and your financial position, you may be better served by a different asset transfer vehicle.
We will explore this subject at the seminars.
They say that you should use the right tool for the right job, and there are a number of different trusts that can be used to accomplish varying estate planning objectives. The right choice will depend upon the circumstances.
At our seminars we will look at the value of trusts, and you may be surprised when you become apprised of the facts.
Medicaid & Nursing Home Asset Protection
Many people are taken aback when they hear that Medicare does not pay for long-term care. Most seniors will eventually need help with their day-to-day needs, and long-term care is extremely expensive, so this is a pressing elder law issue.
Medicaid will pay for long-term care. If you take the right steps, you can potentially gain eligibility without losing a great deal in the process.
There are some in myths out there with regard to Medicaid and long-term care, and we will debunk them at our seminars.
You rarely get the opportunity to build on your knowledge without incurring any costs. The estate planning seminars will provide you with a great deal of very useful information that can save you money and protect the interests of your family.
