Protect Your Home, Assets And Public Benefits

As you get older and begin to suffer from illness or a disability, you may have a large spike in medical bills and long-term care needs. These kinds of needs can quickly add up, and you may fear that your home, retirement savings or investment accounts are at risk.

The attorneys at Becker, Hickey & Poster have protected these assets and others for our clients and their family members across Wisconsin. Our Milwaukee elder law attorneys utilize a variety of strategies to protect your financial security while collecting much-needed public benefits to cover your health care expenses.

We Make The Law Work For You

Public benefits such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid, FoodShare benefits, housing benefits and others provide a safety net for many who are disabled and cannot support themselves, or who may need assistance with the activities of their everyday life.

However, these forms of public benefits have an income and/or asset threshold and are shrouded by requirements and regulations that can be difficult to navigate alone.

You should be able to leave assets for the support of your family members and have access to these public benefits to support your medical needs, long-term care costs and living expenses. Rather than potentially liquidating valuable assets, we help our clients protect them through other means such as special needs trusts, pooled trusts and other estate planning tools.

Our elder law and public benefits lawyers hold your hand throughout the complex process of finding and paying for long-term care, often finding creative ways to secure funding that you may have never thought of alone.

Reach out to our law firm today to discuss your needs and begin exploring options. It's never too late. Learn more by calling 414-273-1414, or send us an email to set up an appointment.
