Highland Long-Range Planning Lawyer

Long-range planning involves considering your possible future needs and putting in place the best possible plan to provide for your care and comfort. At the Highland, Illinois, office of Donald R. Johannes, Attorney at Law, we can help.

Serving clients in the same location for decades, we have gained in-depth knowledge about asset protection and the best way to provide for long-term care. We can discuss your various options and help you choose the right course of action.

Your Options For Long-Range Planning

Medicaid is available to most people who need long-term care. However, if you have ample financial resources of your own, you may not qualify to receive Medicaid benefits. There are tools with which we can help you qualify so that you avoid depleting your own and your family's resources.

Federal law requires many people to use their own resources before receiving Medicaid benefits. Accordingly, you may need to "spend down" your own wealth in order to qualify for Medicaid. Irrevocable trusts can be used for this purpose. They can help move assets from your own possession to benefit loved ones or charities. You can enjoy providing these to people you love and seeing them enjoy them now rather than in your will, when you are gone.
