Do you have a will? Are you a veteran?

Published: December 27, 2020 by Wayne Brophy

Hopefully will be a healthier, and more properous, 2021 for our community, a couple of questions come to mind. First, do you have a will?  Are you aware of the benefits of having a will, or perhaps a trust?  All of us should take advantage of determining how we wish to have our assets handled should we pass away.  In fact, if we do not, it is probable that the state of New York will make those decisions for us.  In addition, as we age, it becomes more important for us to utilize the skill set of a lawyer who specializes in elder care law.  As when you purchase property, start a business, etc., it is always advisable to seek the counsel of an attorney that specializes with benefits available through the county (Medicaid), or the veteran's administration (aid and attendance).  Are you aware that funds set aside for a funeral in a trust can be made irrevocable.  So, you can see that the benefits of visiting an elder care attorney can be invaluable.
