A word of caution — If you make a mistake when transferring or retitling assets for the purposes of qualifying for MassHealth/Medicaid-funded nursing home care, the government may end up taking those assets. You should obtain legal advice before transferring or retitling any assets.
Protecting Your Home and Assets
Gosselin Law will develop a personalized plan designed to help you pay for Medicaid-funded nursing home care and protect your loved one’s assets. Instruments such as properly conducted asset transfers, the purchase of annuities, the creation of irrevocable trusts and other tools are available. In some cases, a reverse mortgage is an appropriate tool that can enable you to keep your home.
Because Gosselin Law employs these types of strategies on a daily and weekly basis, we are thoroughly familiar with how they can be used to achieve the specific goals of our clients. We will apply our knowledge and skills to develop the asset protection plan that is right for you.
