Timely And Creative Asset Protection And Long-Term Care Seminar Open To Public
Palo Alto, CA (Law Firm Newswire) August 12, 2013 – Noted estate planning attorney Michael Gilfix is booked to speak at a comprehensive seminar on Asset Protection & Long-Term Care planning this August in Palo Alto, CA. The public is invited to attend.
Michael Gilfix, of Gilfix and La Poll, a leader in estate planning, tax planning, Medi-Cal planning, and special needs planning, is to speak about asset protection and long-term care planning. Topics covered will include Medi-Cal Planning, asset protection with focus on your residence, Veterans Administration benefits, and dynasty trusts. An invaluable book by Michael Gilfix, “Special Needs Trust Creation and Management Guide,” will also be available to attendees.
"Everyone fears the loss or exhaustion of their assets because of tax and long-term care costs and there are challenges if you have a special needs child," commented Palo Alto estate planning attorney Michael Gilfix. "We open up these informational seminars to the public to allow them to see what goes into crafting a secure asset protection plan, answer any questions, and work to address some of their specific concerns."
The estate planning attorneys at Gilfix and La Poll provide practical advice about how to structure long-term care planning, asset protection, and special needs trusts, and what pitfalls may occur without proper planning. No matter what income bracket, everyone can benefit from working with experienced estate planning attorneys to ensure their assets, savings, and retirement are as safe and secure as possible. For those with a special needs loved one, knowing that the future of a disabled child, or other disabled family member, can be secured with the ideal legal tool of a Special Needs Trust, one that provides them with a lifelong financial safety net, is of specific concern. Assets which are held in a Special Needs Trust are not counted when determining eligibility for such government programs as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medi-Cal.
The seminar is slated for August 27, 2013 at the Crowne Plaza Cabana, in Palo Alto, CA. For more information on the seminar or about Special Needs Trusts, call (650) 493-8070 or (408) 971-7292.
