Plaintiff attorneys face unique challenges when serving the needs of the injured population over age 64. One important concern and responsibility of plaintiff attorneys is to ensure that elderly injured continue to qualify and receive their Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medi-Cal after obtaining a structured settlement.
Recently, I co-wrote an article on the subject for CAOC’s Forum with Kevin Urbatsch and William Lindahl. The article discusses:
–Avoiding Loss of Needs-Based Public Benefits
–How and When to Use Pooled Special Needs Trusts (SNTs)
–How to Select a Pooled SNT
You may find the article useful, especially as the population (and clients) age. To read the article, go to Preserving the Elder Plaintiff’s SSI and Medi-Cal.
Note: I’m happy to report that Patrick Farber Structured Settlements is now a Platinum Level CAOC Business Friend. I look forward to seeing CAOC members at upcoming conferences.
