Nebraska Activity #126827, 1.0 hour CLE

As the federal estate and gift taxes recede as a planning consideration for estates under a certain size, the role of expanded public benefits – Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and other government benefits – plays an increased role as clients and their attorneys plan their estates to provide long-term and fund rising health care costs into old age.  Though eligibility for some benefits – such as Medicaid – is limited to the very poor, other substantial benefits are not means-tested and available to clients of estates of every size and may play an important role in planning for many middle class and upper-middle class clients.  This program will provide you a real-world guide to eligibility for various public benefits programs for clients with variously sized estates and how those benefits can be incorporated into estate plans for a range of clients, providing long-term income and funding health care. 

  • Role of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other public benefits in client estate plans
  • Substantial impact of public benefits in plans of middle class and upper-middle class clients
  • Eligibility of standards and planning to maximize benefits at retirement
  • Leveraging benefits to fund long-term income and long-term health care
  • Integrating benefit programs into larger estate plans
