09/21/2018 – Williamsport, PA — Brittany O.L. Smith, Esquire, of Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak, recently published a book titled, Tax-Free Money for Long-Term Care! The book is a collaborative writing that serves as a consumer’s guide to understanding the current costs of care, Medicaid eligibility rules, long-term care solutions, and the legal strategies available to protect assets.
Long-term care costs are skyrocketing. Whether it’s a room in a nursing home or assisted living facility, or aging at home and using the services of home health care, the costs associated with long-term care can deplete people’s life savings very quickly. However, proper legal planning can ensure that assets are protected from long-term care costs.
“People are unaware of the many legal tools and resources that are available to assist them in protecting assets,” said Attorney Brittany O.L. Smith. “We can utilize Medicaid, Veterans benefits, IRAs, and other legal documents to protect what people have worked so hard to save. The book breaks down these legal strategies in layman’s terms and identifies solutions to paying for the rising costs of care.”
