-- The elder law and estate planning firm Genser Cona Elder Law is sponsoring its 17th annual free
elder law telephone hotline on May 7th. Residents of Long Island and New York City are encouraged to mark their calendars and call the free hotline at 631-390-5000 between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. to speak directly with an attorney for straightforward information about proper planning and procedures to protect valuable assets, such as their home, as they age and their health care needs change.
"It is never too early or too late to plan," says attorney Jennifer Cona, "and asset protection planning is important for everyone, not only for the rich." Genser Cona Elder Law recommends that all families set up customized plans to protect assets. "It's important to put a plan in place and not wait until a crisis occurs. Without proper planning we unfortunately have seen healthcare crises financially devastate families at a time when the focus should be on recovery. While it's never too late to plan, the earlier you plan the better."
The free hotline gives callers the opportunity to gain helpful insight about trusts, estates and preparing an Asset Protection Plan. The firm can also address issues pertinent to veterans, including the Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefit, and how its qualifications differ from those for Medicaid for long term care.
Genser Cona Elder Law partner Melissa Negrin-Wiener, Esq. has processed hundreds of applications for veterans over the last nine years. "The process can be complicated and daunting. For our veterans, planning through an elder care attorney may very well be the difference in whether they get the aid and assistance they are entitled to or not."
