MEDICAID TRUST
If you do not have a long-term care insurance policy and you end up needing long-term care, you would be called “self-pay,” meaning you would have to pay for all of your care until your assets have been drained to the point of qualifying for Medicaid. Currently in Oklahoma the asset limit to qualify for Medicaid is $2000- which means you’d have very little financial resources to pay for what Medicaid doesn’t cover. Setting up a Medicaid Trust allows you to set aside, save and protect money placed in the Medicaid Trust without forfeiting your eligibility for Medicaid. There are special rules as to when this trust can accomplish its goal. Medicaid Trusts are best suited to those who are not already in long term care but can potentially be created for those who already are. Contact our office to speak with an attorney and find out if a Medicaid Trust is right for you.
Total Cost $900
PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT
If you are thinking about getting married, there are circumstances in which a prenuptial agreement is a good idea. By law, we can only represent one of the parties. We’ve been involved with court cases where prenuptial agreements were at issue. As a result, we know how to draft prenuptial agreements that provide better flexibility and better protection. Our prenuptial agreements incorporate a trust within the agreement.
Total Cost $1000
SPECIAL NEEDS TRUST - FIRST PARTY
This would be a Special Needs Trust that is set up for the person that has special needs. If a person has a child who is incompetent, disabled, or otherwise receives benefits from the state and/or government to care for their needs, the adult may set up a Third-Party Special Needs Trust package and add this trust as well. The reasoning is if the incompetent person is high functioning and works or otherwise makes money, they can save that money in this trust as opposed to spending it down continuously below $2000. In addition, when the parent dies, the child may qualify for social security off the parent, and if that money is received, it very likely could disqualify the child from the benefits they are receiving. Having this trust established early and obtaining the necessary approvals by the state in which you live, means that if that money is received, it can be dropped into the trust immediately without risk to the child’s benefits.
Total Cost $2000
SPECIAL NEEDS TRUST - THIRD PARTY
Typically, this type of special needs trust is a special needs provision put into a Revocable Living Trust. The flat-rate price includes ancillary documents that are usually included with a trust such as a will, financial power of attorney, medical power of attorney, designation of guardian, advance medical directive, memorandum of trust, and a deeding of one piece of real estate into the trust and one deed.
Total Cost $1500

“A friend of mine created a trust that named her financial advisor as trustee, which Tom explained was a mistake. When my friend died, the trustee refused to follow the terms of the trust, and I and the other beneficiaries hired Tom to go to court to have the trustee removed. The court removed the trustee and ordered him to repay money he had taken from the trust. The whole situation showed me you need an attorney with experience to help you create a trust that can protect your estate.”
