Milwaukee Public Benefits Lawyers

As individuals get older and reach the point of illness and disability, they may have a large spike in medical bills and long-term care needs. These kinds of needs can quickly add up, and, for some, put assets such as a home, retirement and investment accounts at risk.

At Becker, Hickey & Poster, S.C., our Milwaukee elder law and public benefits attorneys work with individuals and families to protect assets while collecting much needed public benefits to handle health care expenses.

Protect Your Home, Assets And Public Benefits

Public benefits (i.e., Social Security Disability (SSD), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid, foodshare benefits, housing benefits, etc.) typically have an income threshold or means test that qualifies individuals for benefits. For our clients — typically individuals with complex assets and financial interests — this can be a limiting factor, preventing them from getting the care they need.

Just because an individual has significant value in assets does not mean that he or she has the income needed to handle expenses such as medical care. Rather than potentially liquidating valuable assets, we help our clients protect them through other means, such as special needs trusts, pooled trusts, etc.
