What Does Financial or Estate Planning Assistance Involve?
The actual steps that a financial planner or attorney will take when representing you are going to vary depending upon your situation. When you work with an attorney at Pyke & Associates, P.C., some of the things your attorney may help you to do include:
- Creating a power of attorney. This will allow you to ensure your money and property is managed appropriately in case of incapacity so no asset value is lost if you become unable to manage your own investments.
- Creating a Medicaid plan. This will make it possible for you to protect assets and to not have those assets counted when determining if you are eligible for Medicaid coverage. By ensuring you can qualify for Medicaid if you need it, you can avoid losing your nest egg to nursing home costs.
- Creating a business succession plan. If you have your own company, an attorney can help make sure you can pass it down to the next generation.
- Creating an asset protection plan. Your attorney can assist you in identifying risks and causes of loss, such as irresponsible heirs or estate taxes. A plan will be put into place to mitigate or eliminate those risks.
These are just some of the different kinds of financial planning help which clients can receive when they turn to Pyke & Associates, P.C. for assistance.
