Medical Assistance Planning

Medicaid is the federal program that provides for healthcare for the needy. Medical Assistance (MA) is Minnesota's health care program. The state of Minnesota requires that participants virtually exhaust their assets before they qualify for benefits. They may even place a lien upon your holdings to be collected upon your death.

Medical Assistance Planning is the process you may elect to follow in order to protect some of your assets for your heirs.  

Long Term Care & Asset Protection

It is not unusual for a person forced to enter a nursing home for long term care to spend their entire life savings within a span of only a few months. With careful planning and rearrangement of assets you may be able to protect many of your assets should you find yourself required to receive long term medical care.

Disability Planning, Guardianships, Conservatorships and Powers of Attorney

You may find yourself in a vulnerable position due to a disability or incapacity. Who will manage your assets for you? The attorneys of The Kraft Walser Law Office will help you plan for this possibility. You will want to decide in advance who you will trust to manage your well being and assets when you are unable to. They will help you determine the best vehicle to accomplish your goals whether it be a guardianship, conservatorship or assigning powers of attorney to a friend or relative.

Estate Planning

Every estate needs planning, no matter if you are a young couple with fewer assets or an experienced adult approaching retirement. Your estate plan should incorporate estate tax reduction, probate avoidance, and asset preservation strategies. You will want to provide a mechanism for financial and health care decisions should you be unable to make the decisions yourself.

The attorneys of The Kraft Walser Law Office can counsel you in selecting the correct estate planning tools to satisfy your individual needs.  

Creating & Administering Trusts

A trust is an estate planning tool, there are two different types of trusts available for you to use. The testamentary trust is created after your death as part of a Will. The living trust , is created to transfer assets while you are still alive.

In the typical trust arrangement, you will select the trustee that will hold legal title to your property. This person is typically the person you wish to leave the property to upon your death.

In a living trust, you may retain control over the property held in the trust. The living trust may allow you to transfer assets and reduce tax liabilities.

Financial Decision Making & Health Care Directives

Minnesota law provides that you may inform others of your health care wishes in writing or by appointing an agent in writing that will make healthcare decisions based upon your wishes. This is important as you may become unable to make your own medical decisions due to illness or injury.

Advance planning, good legal advice, and the collection of important information will ensure peace of mind for your family as they go through the probate process. Call Kraft Walser Law Office and let us get started working for you.
