Downers Grove Medicaid Planning Explained

Downers Grove Elder Law Lawyers

Downers Grove elder law attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains estate tax and discusses some tools used to avoid it or minimize it.

Downers Grove Elder Law Lawyers

In this article, our Downers Grove Medicaid planning attorneys explain how to plan for long-term care in Illinois.  Long-term care can be incredibly costly.  Many people rely on Medicaid benefits to cover the cost of long-term care.  However, in order to be eligible for Medicaid, you must have already "spent down" the majority of your own assets.  Our Downers Grove elder law attorneys explain how to use life estate deeds and irrevocable trusts to keep your most important assets in your family while becoming eligible for Medicaid.  We explain the 5-year look back period prior to filing for Medicaid during which transfers are scrutinized and may result in a delay in your eligibility for Medicaid benefits.

Elder Law Attorney Downers Grove IL

In this article, our Downers Grove elder law attorneys explain how to protect the assets and income of a healthy spouse when the other spouse applies for Medicaid in order to pay for long-term care.   We discuss the amount and type of assets and income that the healthy spouse is allowed to keep, called the "community spouse resource allowance."  Our Downers Grove Medicaid attorneys explain how you should plan for your Medicaid application in order to maximize the value of the community spouse resource allowance.  We also discuss the law regarding the government's recovery of Medicaid expenses from the next generation, and how you can plan to pass as much of your estate to your loved ones as possible.

Allowable Transfers Within the Medicaid 5-Year Look Back Period

Downers Grove elder law attorney Kevin O'Flaherty of O'Flaherty Law discusses using a Living Will to provide for end of life instruction.

Elder Law Lawyer Downers Grove IL

In this article, our Downers Grove elder law attorneys explain what types of transfers to your loved ones are permissible within the 5-Year Medicaid Look Back Period.  These types of transfers will not result in a delay of your eligibility for Medicaid benefits even if made within 5 years of applying for Medicaid benefits to pay for long-term care.  Any type of asset may be transferred to your spouse, to a permanently disabled child, or to a trust for the benefit of anyone who is permanently disabled and under the age of 65.  Your home may be transferred to a child under the age of 21, a "caretaker child," or siblings under certain conditions.  We discuss who qualifies as a "caretaker child" and how to plan for allowable transfers within the Medicaid 5-year Look Back Period.
