Ideally, Estate Planning should begin as an individual enters adulthood. Children don’t need this planning but parents with children need to plan to protect them. Once you turn 18 in Pennsylvania, you are an adult and your parents no longer have the legal right to manage your affairs. This is especially important if you have assets of your own or suffer from a disability that may make you vulnerable to being taken advantage of or may need medical care where someone may be required to consent to that care for you.
Proper Estate Planning includes so many different considerations, a will being but one small piece of the puzzle. Things to consider if you are engaging in Estate Planning:
- The financial needs of dependent spouse or children were you to become disabled or die;
- The living arrangements of an ill spouse or child were you to become disabled or die;
- Financial management for you if you become disabled;
- Medical and personal care management if you become disabled;
- Needs of a disabled child;
- How the proceeds of your savings, investments and life insurance proceeds will be managed by those you leave behind;
- Consideration of will and or trust planning;
- Whether there are public benefits that may be available to pay for the care of your surviving spouse or child;
- And many other considerations.
Seeking out help from an experienced, capable Estate Planning or Elder Law attorney that is familiar with these issues is essential when it comes to effectively planning your estate.
Medicaid and Asset Protection planning is necessary to ensure you get the best care possible in the manner and location of your choice. Often, people do not think about asset protection until a friend or family member needs nursing care or other long-term care. Once people see the financial devastation that long-term care cause, astute people want to prevent that happening to them and their families. However, planning ahead and establishing a framework for care can provide you and your family with better overall care planning options and a higher likelihood of your care wishes being carried out.
