When Father Time Catches Up With Our Parents

We all expect it to happen eventually—our parents getting older. Not just older chronologically, but physically and mentally older as well. It’s a difficult and sometimes painful process to realize that our parents are in fact aging. With each passing year, your parents, too, may be showing more obvious signs of time gone by. Even the spryest of spry eventually start to slow down and need more help than they did before.

Sometimes it happens slowly and you have time to adjust to your new reversed role as the caregiver. When you visit, you notice they are not keeping up with their normal routines, they may need more help around the house, or help managing their checkbook and bills. And other times, the caregiver role reversal is thrust upon you suddenly and unexpectedly due to an illness or accident which can cause much stress and concern for your parents’ well being. When these turns of events happen, there may also come a time when your parents will need more care than you can provide on your own.

Lowering Your Chances at Qualifying for Medicaid?

Know the Law before Transferring an Asset!

Estate Planning is often a necessary task. It is most commonly known as a way to direct your assets to those you wish to provide for after your death. But, did you know that part of the estate planning process could also help with providing for your care or the care of a loved one upon disability? A well thought out estate plan can prove especially useful where a beneficiary may need government assistance, such as SSI or Medicaid. A hasty transfer of assets can mean the difference between receiving the government’s help or being on your own.

Each state determines its own requirements. In order to qualify for Medicaid benefits, the applicant must generally be elderly, disabled or blind and have insufficient income and resources to pay for his or her medical expenses. However, a medically needy applicant with sufficient income and resources, who meets all other Medicaid eligibility requirements, can still qualify. The excess income and resources must...

Five Reasons To Plan Your Estate Now

We can all come up with reasons to procrastinate and avoid doing what we should. However, there are many reasons to avoid procrastination when it comes to estate planning. Here are five of them:

1. Reduce estate tax and income tax
Proper estate planning can reduce estate and income taxes for both you and your family. Depending on the size of your estate, proper planning could cut your taxes by half or more.

2. Name guardians for minor children
Clearly, the future of your children is extremely important. In your absence, perhaps nothing is more important than who will watch over them. You can only nominate guardians for your minor children in a properly drawn Will.

Avoid Public Scrutiny Of Your Private Life

If you’ve ever read People, US, or Entertainment Weekly or watched any of the similar television shows, you might be interested to know how some famous celebrities left their assets upon their deaths. If they left a Will and not a Trust, you can find out: It’s public record.

That’s right, you can go right to the courthouse and see their Wills for yourself!

• Gerry Garcia left all of his guitars to Douglas Erwin.
• John Lennon wanted Sam Green to be Guardian of his children if Yoko Ono was not living at his death.
• Elvis Presley left his assets for the benefit of his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, his grandmother, Minnie Mae Presley, and his father, Vernon E. Presley. Elvis’ Will provided that his assets were to go outright to Lisa Marie on her twenty-fifth birthday.

Is Knowledge Power?

Sir Francis Bacon is reputed to have coined the latin aphorism “Scientia potentia est” or the well-known phrase “Knowledge is power.” But is it really?

If it were true, wouldn’t it mean that reading Muscle and Fitness magazine or Shape magazine would make us lean, toned and fit? Book and magazine sales in the health, fitness and dieting category exceed $70 million per year, yet last year two out of three Americans were overweight or obese.

The truth of the matter is knowing is simply not enough. Knowledge is NOT power, it’s potential power. That’s why reading fitness magazines and books won’t make you fit. Real progress only occurs when you get into action.

As the author, Brian P. Moran observes: “Knowledge is only powerful if you use it. If you use it; if you act on it. Knowledge alone benefits no one unless the person acquiring it does something with it. Great ideas are worthless unless they are implemented.” Brian P. Moran, The 12 Week Year

It doesn’t matter how much you know, or who you know, or how well-connected you are. If you fail to act according to what you know, none of that knowledge will matter.

That fact is equally true when it comes to estate planning. Far too many people learn about the importance of writing a will or setting up a living trust, but never actually take action to put such estate planning documents into place. They may read books and magazine articles or attend webinars or workshops about estate planning, then think to themselves “I really need to do that!” Yet they never pull the trigger; never act upon that knowledge and resolve to establish a trust that will truly protect their financial and family legacy. Let me help you with both.

I regularly offer free educational online seminars where I provide you with valuable knowledge about what a well-crafted estate plan looks like and how it can bring you a greater sense of security and peace of mind. As part of those presentations, I also offer motivation and incentives to help you finally get this area of your life squared away so that you and your loved ones will be protected while you’re alive and when you’re gone. You can learn about upcoming seminars by going to my Seminars/Webinars page or by clicking on the link below to get the details about tomorrow’s live webinar titled Medicaid Planning for Perilous Times.

August 26, 2020 Medicaid Planning Webinar - The Artis Law Firm

Too many of us tempt fate by not taking action to prepare for our future and the future of those that we love. Many wait until some catastrophe occurs that reminds us of our mortality. Some wait until they receive bad news from their medical doctor. Whether from a stroke or cancer or a catastrophic accident, we simply cannot know the timing of fate. Thus, though there may never be a good time to prepare an estate plan, waiting until something serious happens is definitely not a good time. Rather, it is far better to take advantage of the time when the time is available.

Investing the time and money to prepare an estate plan is an expression of wisdom and of love. It reflects wise stewards who care enough for their family and loved ones to take the appropriate measures to protect the financial and life legacy for which they’ve worked so hard and so long, so that upon their passing, their legacy lives on through the generations.

Please join me today at 4pm PST for an Online Seminar to learn how to use simple legal strategies to help make your wishes known, keep peace in the family, and ensure that life is as easy as possible for you and for your loved ones, no matter what happens.
