How can an Elder Law Attorney help me? Seasons’ recent article entitled “Finding an elder care lawyer” discusses ways in which an experienced elder law attorney can help you.

Social Security. Did you know that you’re statistically more likely to achieve a positive outcome when you get help from a lawyer when approaching the Social Security Administration?

Elder attorneys know the steps they can take to get the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) your senior deserves. Both of these programs can provide your senior with considerable financial assistance as they age.

Medicare and Medicaid planning. An elder attorney can accurately assess your eligibility and determine if it’s worth applying for Medicaid. If your application is denied, your attorney can also help you to appeal this decision.

An experienced Medicare lawyer can also help you to understand the various options available to you, letting you move forward and pursue the best possible health care assistance for your elder loved one. You may be paying more than necessary in premiums or out-of-pocket expenses, and a lawyer can guide you toward more suitable choices.

Probate. You may need to engage an elder law lawyer after your senior loved one has died. They can guide the entire family through this difficult time, assisting executors and ensuring that beneficiaries receive their inheritances.

While the probate process can be avoided entirely if your senior works with a qualified estate planning attorney prior to their death, there are several estate planning tools that can make inheriting assets much easier, including trusts.

With help from an experienced estate planning attorney, your senior can identify the most effective types of legal documents for their needs. Estate planning attorneys can also help with wills, advance directives, powers of attorney and more.
