LONG-TERM CARE PLANNING
Senior citizens without significant savings are almost certain to need assistance at some point, and it is wise to incorporate veteran’s benefits (if applicable) and Medi-Cal into the estate plan. Qualifying for benefits poses numerous challenges and pitfalls for the unwary, and experienced legal counsel is critical. Please click a topic below to learn more.
• Veteran’s Benefits
The Aid and Attendance benefit for qualified veterans is one of the VA’s best-kept secrets. It provides benefits for veterans and surviving spouses who require regular assistance with the activities of daily life. The Aid and Attendance pension benefit can provide up to $1,704 per month to a veteran, $1,094 per month to a surviving spouse, or $2,020 per month to a couple (as of 2012).
To qualify for this benefit, veterans must meet stringent financial criteria and may need to restructure their assets. Do not attempt to restructure your assets without legal assistance.
Quinton J. Miller is certified by the Veteran’s Administration to advise clients regarding the Aid and Attendance benefit, and has years of experience qualifying veterans for this benefit.
• Medi-Cal Planning
The good news is that fully half of California’s long-term care residents depend on Medi-Cal to fund their care. The bad news is that a stringent $2,000.00 asset threshold and a punishing 2½ year look back period can penalize seniors who fail to plan ahead.
Our office is skilled in evaluating and restructuring estates to qualify our clients for Medi-Cal while preserving their assets.
