Delray Beach, FL , August 15, 2019: Mindy Felinton, founder of Felinton Elder Law & Estate Planning Centers, has posted a new article on her law firm's website entitled "Don't Let The Government and Long-Term Care Costs Eat Up All Your Assets." Ms. Felinton clues readers in to information that can save their assets.
Felinton writes, "As a practicing, Elder Law and Estate Planning attorney, I meet hundreds of people each year. One of the most frequently asked questions I hear is, "How can I protect my assets from the government and long-term care costs?""
"Many people I work with," says Felinton, "are surprised to discover that saving on income taxes today is not as great as it's made out to be. Another area of discovery for many of my clients is that taking IRA money either too soon or too late leads to significant penalties. In addition, not understanding how your state Medicaid department treats IRAs can result in you losing your entire IRA to long-term care costs."
