Elder Law & Medicaid Planning In Lincoln Park

In this article, our Lincoln Park senior planning attorneys outline Medicaid eligibility and requirements and explain the Medicaid look-back period. Medicaid is a program that helps with health care costs for individuals with limited income and resources. The program also helps the elderly with certain costs that are not usually covered by Medicare such as assisted living, nursing home, or in-home care. For the elderly to be eligible, they must have limited assets and income.

In this video, Lincoln Park elder law attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains medicaid eligibility requirements and the look-back period in Lincoln Park.

Guardianship Proceedings in Lincoln Park

In this article, our Lincoln Park elder law attorneys uncover how Powers of Attorney can help people avoid the costly and time consuming process of guardianship proceedings by designating who will handle the affairs of an individual in case of incapacity or disability. If an individual becomes mentally incompetent due to disease, injury or old age, their immediate family can not simply take over the management of their major life decisions or financial affairs without Powers of Attorney.

In this video, Lincoln Park elder law attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses how using healthcare POAs helps to avoid costly guardianship hearings in Lincoln Park.

Creating an Estate Plan in Lincoln Park

In this article, our Lincoln Park elder law attorneys unravel how trusts are used in order to prevent Chicago probate proceedings. In probate proceedings, the courts distribute the assets of a deceased individuals' estate to heirs and creditors. The proceedings are a long and costly process that can be avoided by implementing a revocable living trust and transferring money and other estate assets to it during one's lifetime.

The revocable living trust is a legal entity that owns the assets and property of the trust's creator during their lifetime. The creator of the trust has control of it during their lifetime and can also stipulate what happens to the assets in the trust once that individual is no longer living.
