New Law Makes Big Changes to Retirement Plans

A a spending bill signed into law by the President contains major changes to retirement plans. The bipartisan legislation is designed to provide more incentives to save for retirement, but it may require workers to rethink some of their planning.

10/31/2019

Not all assets of the decedent are required to go through the probate process. Typically, life insurance policies and retirement plans will avoid probate if a proper beneficiary designation has been made by the decedent. However, if no beneficiaries are listed, or the named beneficiaries are deceased, most custodians will pay the proceeds to the decedent’s estate, thus requiring its inclusion in the probate process.

10/24/2019

If your loved one died without a valid will, Louisiana law dictates who will inherit their assets. In Louisiana, there are only two types of valid wills: a handwritten will and a notarial will. However, don’t be fooled by the names. There are specific formalities for both types that must be followed to be valid. If a will is invalid, then Louisiana’s rules will apply and not the wishes of the decedent.

If a succession is to be handled under administration, then a succession representative must be appointed. If your loved one had a will, then typically it will name an executor. If there is no will or the will does not name an executor, then anyone may request to be appointed as the succession representative.

Did your loved one die leaving forced heirs? The rules of Louisiana Forced heirship provide that despite the terms of a will, certain individual are entitled to receive a specific portion of the decedent’s estate. A “forced heir” includes any child of the decedent under the age of 24 or who is permanently incapable of caring for himself or administering his property due to a mental or physical disability.

WHAT IS LONG TERM CARE BENEFITS PLANNING?

Just the thought of outliving your assets can trigger fear.

The fact is that this problem happens more now than ever before. Thanks to modern medicine, we are living longer.

The odds of needing nursing home care are high. Research shows roughly that one out of every two people over age 65 need care – a figure much higher than other routinely insured risks such as homes or automobiles.

Call our office at 318-445-4516 to schedule a free consultation to learn how to better prepare for your future and preserve your assets.

How many opportunities for VA benefits have you overlooked?

Far too many people in Louisiana don’t pursue VA benefits because they believe you must have a service-connected injury to qualify. This is simply not the case.

In fact, most former military members and their widows are eligible to receive a little-known “pension benefit” from the Department of Veteran Affairs. This pension benefit can help cover costs for help with eating, bathing, dressing, undressing, medication dosing or taking care of the needs of nature.

To begin the qualification process for you or a loved one, schedule your VA Benefits Eligibility Review with one of our experienced attorneys. The advice is FREE and anything discussed remains confidential. Simply call (318) 445-4516 today to schedule your private, no-obligation session.

The “five-year rule” has nothing to do with determining your qualification for benefits – it only relates to whether you’ll receive partial or full benefits. Certain transactions in the five-year period prior to filing an application may result in a delay of full benefits for a specific period time. However, this period can be shortened or even eliminated if the right steps are taken.

There are many assets which are not counted with determining eligibility for Medicaid long-term care benefits. For example, your home property (up to $585,000.00 in equity), one vehicle, household goods, and personal effects are exempt from the asset limit.
