Elder Law comprises a cluster of legal and financial matters facing older individuals by virtue of their age.  Some of the issues of particular interest to retirement age folks include:  Estate planning, asset protection, powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, living wills, guardianship, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security benefits, special needs trusts, nursing home admission or other long-term care, federal estate and state inheritance taxation.

Because older individuals have less time to plan for retirement and beyond, planning should become a priority.  Making proper arrangements now can protect precious assets, maximize income, avoid (not evade!) taxes, reduce debts, and ensure things run as smoothly as possible for you and your family.

While many of these concerns may seem straightforward, not requiring professional assistance, one runs the risk of missing something that could be beneficial to one's family.  Or worse, one could create a problem that could have been avoided. Re-titling or re-deeding property is just one of these areas which can be beneficial or problematic depending on the individual's unique circumstances and is very easy to do but sometimes impossible to undo.
