Protecting Your Family And Your Future


Is a Long-Term Care Asset Protection Plan Right for Me?

Do you have concerns about:

  • Protecting current assets from potential creditors,
  • Providing for an easy distribution of your assets following your passing,
  • Running out of money if you (or your spouse) become ill and require care,
  • Having no control over who provides care for you if you need it,
  • Leaving an inheritance to your loved ones, only to have it taken by their creditors,
  • Your children misusing the property or money you leave to them,
  • Providing support to a loved one with a disability both during your lifetime and after your passing,
  • Making sure your wishes about care and your finances are carried out.

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, we can help. A long-term care asset protection plan is not a one-size-fits-all set of documents. Each plan is designed based on your concerns, your desires, and your goals.
