Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts, Advance Directives - After working a lifetime to build assets, creating a living trust makes it easy to transfer these assets to loved ones. 

Conservatorships - A Conservatorship is created when the Court appoints a Conservator to protect the proposed Conservatee from serious health problems and/or from undue influence in financial matters. 

Probate- Probate is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under a will.

Medi-Cal Planning & Asset Protection - Having the assistance of an expert in public benefits planning can make it possible to afford care without depleting the assets of an estate.

Susan's Picks LA/OC

What the heck is a HECM? 

It's one of the best financial options for paying for care and it's backed by the Federal Government!

HECM stands for home equity conversion mortgage 

1. Stay in your home as you age.

2. Increase your cash flow so you can get out of the pressure cooker. 

3. Establish a credit line and use only what you want to use. 

Also known as a Reverse Mortgage, this is one of the best options available.  

To find out if you qualify, or to just ask questions, call Jay Kaplan at (949) 300-3855
