Dickmann Reason Bogigian & White Greenfield IN Estate Planning Law

estate-planning-attorney-greenfield-in-dickmann-reason-bogigian-whiteFew of us ever give much thought to our golden years beyond retirement. While many of us have a retirement plan in place, what we most often lack is a plan to deal with health crisis, personal care and care of our finances as we age. However, a fall, an illness or simply old age may prevent us from making or communicating our wishes to our loved ones. In addition, the financial burden of our care could fall to family members if we have not taken the time to put a plan in place. Some of the services we offer clients in Greenfield, Fortville, New Palestine, McCordsville, Hancock County, Indianapolis, Shelbyville, Morristown, Knightstown, Anderson, Pendleton, New Castle, Connersville, Rushville, Fishers, Geist, Carmel, Shelby County, Henry County, Hamilton County, Madison County, Marion County and central Indiana include:

  • Long Term Care Planning – we’ll help you develop a plan for paying for nursing home expenses, in home care expenses and other expenses involved in your care as you age. We can help with Medicaid Planning, reviewing your current insurance policies and working out tax strategies for managing your finances.
  • Advance Directives – most people give very little thought to the fact that we make our own decisions about our health every time we visit the doctor. Advanced directives help ensure you continue making your own health care decisions, even if you are unable to effectively communicate your wishes to your doctor or your family. We’ll help you prepare directives to appoint a person to be your health care representative, ensure your wishes about organ and tissue donation are known, help with powers of attorney for both health care and finances and help with living wills and other directives that provide direction to your medical care team and your family regarding your wishes.
  • Special Needs Planning – when a cherished family member has special needs it is stressful to consider what might happen after your death. A special needs trust can be established for their care after your passing including planning for their finances, living arrangements and their care.
