New Jersey Estate Planning Attorney Reminds Families About Estate Planning Awareness Week

Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) October 11, 2011 - “National Estate Planning Awareness Week” October 17-23 reminds individuals and their families about the importance of planning for long-term decisions and asset protection. Estate planning is a complex matter and individuals should seek a qualified estate planning attorney to tailor a plan specific to their financial goals and family needs. Without proper planning, individuals could risk their savings and greatly affect their loved ones after they pass away.

“Estate plans take the stress out of all the issues that need to be addressed such as a will, trust, and end of life decisions,” said New Jersey estate planning attorney Tom Begley Jr., of the Begley Law Group P.C. “Many tax, government benefit, and legal considerations need to be figured out to successfully plan for the future.”

Begley Law Group was recently named one of Philadelphia Business Journal’s Top 25 South Jersey Law Firms. The firm has served the Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia region for more than 75 years. The National Association of Estate Planners & Councils says that more than 120 million people nationwide do not have estate plans and could risk their assets and deal with emotional hardship if a family member got chronically ill, was in a bad accident, or passed away unexpectedly.

“It is never too early to plan and make your wishes known,” said Begley. “Many people want to name their grandchildren, a charity, or make sure a spouse is set up adequately. But if you do not plan for this and do not review your estate plan every couple of years, you could really jeopardize your legacy.”

Begley Law Group’s attorneys also have a wealth of experience helping children and adults with special needs, are seen as leaders in elder law, and are aware of the latest changes to laws affecting these groups.

  • Financing Long-Term Care in New Jersey 2017
    Statistics show that approximately 70% of the population age 65 or over will require some form of long-term care. Some will be there for relatively short periods of time. These are usually stroke or accident victims or surgery patients who are doing rehabilitation. A significant percentage will remain in a nursing home for an extended period of time. These are usually Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or other Dementia patients. A statistic widely quoted is that the average stay in a nursing home is 2.9 years. This statistic is somewhat misleading, because the persons receiving rehabilitation are often discharged in one month or [...]
  • FUNDING SPECIAL NEEDS TRUSTS
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA Overview Estate planning attorneys are regularly called upon to draft trusts for their clients’ children with disabilities. Typically, these children are determined to be disabled by the Social Security Administration and are receiving SSI, Medicaid, or other means-tested public benefits. The goal of the parent in establishing the trust is to maintain public benefits for the child with disabilities while providing an inheritance to enrich the child’s life. The inheritance is to supplement, not supplant, public benefits. There is an old adage that there are two ways to screw up a Special Needs Trust: [...]
