The Role of Trusts in the Estate Planning Process
Although a trust can be established on a one-time basis to accomplish a single purpose, The Pollan Law Firm prefers to use trusts as one component in the overall estate planning process.
For example, if you are the parent of an adult disabled child, you may wish to establish a special needs trust to provide for the child's needs after you are gone. For your other children, you may also want to form other types of trusts or traditional bequests to provide legacies for them. Our lawyers can review your situation and recommend an overall strategy that provides for the needs of your loved ones and preserves your assets for the next generation.
Qualified Income Trusts (Miller Trusts)
Georgia has a strict limit on income for the purposes of determining eligibility for Medicaid-financed nursing home care.
With the use of a Qualified Income Trust (also called a Miller Trust) it is possible to qualify even if your income exceeds the limit. These trusts require careful planning and familiarity with the complex rules that govern such trusts.
As an experienced Medicaid planning practice, The Pollan Law Firm can determine if a Miller Trust is right for you. If it is, we can take the actions necessary to establish the trust so that your loved one can get the long-term care he or she needs.
