Comprehensive planning involves not only advancing today’s goal, but preparing for the future by reviewing the entire situation.

  •  Medicaid planning often includes re-titling assets and shifting elements of existing estate plans.
  • If powers of attorney are not already in place, they are also often needed.
  • Guardianship proceedings may be needed depending on the specific situation and planning needs.
  • Existing beneficiary designations should be inventoried and trust planning should be considered to complete the planning process.

 In each case, a detailed review of the situation is needed as part of a comprehensive estate and long-term care plan. Often, this involves working collaboratively with family, financial planners, tax planners, and bankers.
