Most people underestimate the risk of developing a disability and needing long-term care. A recent study by the US Department of Health & Human Services concluded that more than 50% of Americans 65 and older can expect to need long-term care for an average of two years. People with certain conditions, such as stroke, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or other dementia, and multiple sclerosis, among others, can expect to need long-term care for much longer periods, the cost of which can be staggering. Planning for long-term care and end of life decisions is probably the most incomplete piece of an estate plan and the least understood.
A plan that has equal emphasis on planning for wealth transfer and disability/incapacity will preserve options, preserve wealth, and keep families from being blindsided by the effects of long-term care.
This webinar is designed for licensed attorneys and members of the public who want to know more about elder law and planning for end of life and long-term care. We explore the elements typically left out of estate plans (or inadequately provided for), why they are important, and how to fix them. We will cover the basics of public benefits – Medi-Cal and Veterans Benefits, what is available, eligibility requirements and planning strategies for qualifying. This is a rapidly developing area of the law addressing the needs of an important population in our state.
