Elder Law & Medicaid Planning In Illinois

Illinois Elder Law Lawyers

Illinois senior planning attorney, Kevin O'Flaherty, explains what a good estate plan can accomplish for you and your loved ones.

Illinois Elder Law Lawyers

In this article, our Illinois elder law attorneys discuss life estate deeds and irrevocable trusts.  These tools allow your clients to plan for long-term care, allowing their loved ones to inherit their family home and other important assets rather than having those assets consumed by long-term care and medicaid.

Illinois Senior Planning: Allowable Transfers Within The Medicaid 5 Year Look Back Period

Our Illinois Elder Law attorneys explain how to use healthcare and financial powers of attorney to prevent the need for a guardianship proceeding should you become mentally incompetent.

Illinois Medicaid attorneys

this article, our Illinois elder law attorneys explain allowable transfers within the medicaid period.  In order to qualify to have medicaid pay for your long-term care, you must have already “spent down” all of your own assets.  One medicaid planning strategy is to transfer assets such as the family home to your children in order to qualify for medicaid without depleting your children’s inheritance.  However, any transfers of assets for less than fair market value within 5 years prior to applying for Medicaid will result in a delay in your eligibility for Medicaid.  This is called the 5 year look back period.  There are some exceptions to this rule.  Certain types of transfers may be made within the Medicaid 5 year look back period without delaying your eligibility for Medicaid benefits.  Our Illinois elder law attorneys describe the exceptions to the Illinois Medicaid 5 year look back rule in this article.

The 8 Goals Of A Good Estate Plan

Illinois elder law attorney, Kevin O'Flaherty, discusses how to use revocable living trusts to prevent costly and time-consuming probate cases at your passing.

Illinois medicaid lawyers

Our Illinois elder law attorneys discuss some of the common goals that our clients accomplish through estate plan.  Our Illinois elder lawyers guide our clients through the process of:

  • Using revocable living trusts to ensure your estate doesn't require costly probate court in order to distriubte your assets when you pass.
  • Using trusts and wills to appoint executors and trustees to protect, manage and distribute your assets according to your wishes.
  • Using healthcare and property powers of attorney to ensure guardian proceedings won't be necessary if you become mentally incompetent.
  • Using a living will to make end of life decisions.                

We also discuss several more specialized goals, such as:

  • Avoiding estate taxes
  • Planning for a loved one with special needs
  • Protecting your assets from creditors; and 
  • planning for long term care.

Our Illinois elder law attorneys know that no two clients have the exact same goals.  We work with each client to create the best plan to eliminate stress and worry in your golden years.
