Vernon Hills Health Care and Estate Planning

Steven H. Peck Ltd., is frequently asked to do estate planning where there is a health care component. Such types of arrangements are becoming more common and we have worked with clients in Vernon Hills and throughout Lake County to set up such plans.

Making sure that a health care component is added to estate planning focuses on two important “what if” questions. What happens to you and your family if you become incapacitated or if you or a family member needs long term care?

There are many strategies that can be put into place. Our firm can work with you to create living trusts. We can help you determine your qualifications for Medicaid or VA benefits – and more importantly we want to develop a strategy as part of your estate planning that will allow you to preserve your assets if you need care for a long period of time. As an estate planning attorney for Lake County, IL our clients know that we can help them in case of long-term illness and still allow the estate to have its assets preserved.
