Sound Advice:

Chose a protected home ownership option

You have probably heard someone say : "If you go into the nursing home the State will take your home." In certain circumstances, the State has a right to place a lien against your home to recover nursing home costs paid under the Medicaid program. By re-titling the deed to your home as a life estate or by transferring your home to a special kind of trust, you can eliminate the State's recovery right. This must be done while you are still in good health, five years before an application for Medicaid paid nursing home care is made.
