Helping You Maintain Medicaid Eligibility With A Miller Trust

Did you recently have to put an aging parent into a nursing home? Does a loved one make too much money to qualify for Medicaid benefits? Are you concerned about paying for your long-term health care needs if you are unable to collect Medicaid payments? The lawyers at the Law Offices of Bonnie M. Benson, P.A., in Delaware can help you.

We Will Help You Determine If A Miller Trust Is Right For You

Our law firm has been providing effective and affordable elder law and estate planning services to clients throughout Sussex County and Kent County since 1983. We understand the difficulties you face when you or a member of your family needs long-term care.

If you make more income than the highest amount allowed by Medicaid eligibility requirements, we will help you establish a plan to provide long-term care without jeopardizing your eligibility for Medicaid benefits. An irrevocable qualified income trust — referred to as a "Miller trust" — takes any income that exceeds the eligibility cap out of the hands of the Medicaid applicant and holds it in trust for his or her heirs. Although setting up this estate planning tool is complicated, we have decades of experience setting up Miller trusts for our clients.
