Medicaid Planning In Tinley Park, Illinois

In this article, our Tinley Park Medicaid attorneys discuss life estate deeds and irrevocable trusts.  Their use allows yourself to be eligible for Medicaid assistance with long-term care without drawing down your assets.  We also discuss irrevocable trusts and how they are used to prevent Medicaid from seizing assets upon your death if Medicaid pays for your long-term care.  Since Medicaid requires your assets to be spent to be eligible for long term care assistance, this information can be invaluable to protect assets for your loved ones.  The Medicaid 5-Year Look Back Period is explained, which delays eligibility for Medicaid when you transfer certain assets to your family members.  We compare life estate deeds and revocable living trusts as Medicaid planning tools and ensure you know the choices that are right for you and your loved ones.

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

Overview of Medicaid for Long-Term Care

Our Tinley Park elder law attorneys discuss Medicaid income requirements, the Medicaid look back period, and Medicaid eligibility requirements. Gifts made within five years prior to applying for Medicaid nursing home assistance will disqualify you for Medicaid benefits for a certain period of time depending on the size of the gift.  In addition, any such gifts may be reversed after you pass, allowing the government to seize the assets despite the gift. Life Estate Deeds and Irrevocable Living Trusts can be used to (1) qualify for Medicaid assistance while still preserving your assets; and (2) pass your remaining assets to your loved ones without them being subject to a Medicaid Lien.
