In the Era of COVID-19: Five Planning Tools to Protect Your Family

While it’s always important to have a plan in place to protect your wishes and your family in the event of death or medical crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic is understandably causing more concern for families without a plan in place. Right now, even with so many things out of our control, there ARE things you CAN control to help your family — like having a plan in place to control what happens in case you or a loved one faces a medical crisis. Having a plan will give you and your family some additional peace of mind during these incredibly stressful times. We are here to help you put a plan together – without you leaving your house! 

What will you learn?

  • The basic documents in an estate plan – wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and living wills.
  • Why you (yes you!) need an estate plan, no matter your age, financial status, or what your family looks like. 
  • How we can help you create an estate plan, even during these days of social distancing.

Why A Healthcare Directive is More Critical Now Than Ever 

Not exactly sure what it means to have a healthcare directive — or if you even need one? (Hint: you do! Especially now!) Do you wonder what your doctor means every time you are asked if you have a living will? Join this webinar to learn what a healthcare directive includes and how to ensure your family is free from the pain of making big decisions without knowing what you want. 

What will you learn?

  • What could happen if you do not have a healthcare directive.
  • The difference between a healthcare directive and a surrogate (or proxy).
  • How both documents work together to protect your wishes.

How to Talk to Your Parents (or Yourself) About Long-Term Care

If you weren’t already worried about long-term care needs for your parents (or yourself) before the COVID-19 pandemic, you are not alone if you’re concerned now. We’ve all heard the terrifying reports of the long-term health impact of COVID-19 can have on people of all age groups, especially older adults. More and more families are scattered across the country, and separated by quarantines, making an already difficult situation even harder. No matter where you all live, your whole family can attend this webinar together and come up with a plan – together – for how your family can be best prepared during this healthcare crisis. 

What will you learn? 

  • The different ways of paying for long-term care.
  • The costs of waiting too long to plan.
  • How to plan together as a family no matter where you and your family live. 

Knowing What You Don’t Know: The Difference Between Wills and Trusts

Do you think having a will means you avoid probate? What is probate anyway? Or do you assume trusts are only for the wealthy? This webinar will demystify both wills and trusts so you understand exactly what you don’t know. Learn why a will downloaded from the Internet may cause more trouble for your family than you think. If you haven’t yet made a will or aren’t sure if your existing plan is right for your current situation, this webinar is for you. 

What will you learn?

  • The key differences between a will and a trust.
  • When probate is required and whether you really need to avoid it.
  • How to assess if your current plan accomplishes your goals.


Medicare vs. Medicaid: What’s the Difference? 

Do you assume that Medicare will cover the costs of long-term care for you or a family member? Do you think Medicaid could never apply to you? Think again. In this webinar, we explain why Medicaid is an option for nearly everyone facing long-term care needs and the limits of Medicare coverage. Medicaid comes with a long list of rules and criteria, but you don’t have to figure it out on your own. Many people don’t learn the difference between Medicaid and Medicare until they are in a crisis, costing families undue stress and lots of money. Knowing the difference between the two and creating a plan in advance is the best way to protect your lifelong earning for your family. 

What will you learn?

  • The difference between Medicare and Medicaid.
  • How to access Medicaid without losing all your assets first.
  • Why you need an attorney who specializes in Medicaid for long-term care needs.
