Elder Law

Medicare - Supplemental Health Insurance - Need and Eligibility
There are many items that Original Medicare will not cover under either Part A hospitalization coverage or Part B medical insurance. These include routine care, such as annual medical checkups, eye examinations and corrective wear, dental work, and most immunizations. Items that are not medically reasonable or necessary are also excluded. Examples of these items include cosmetic surgery, private nurses, and personal conveniences. In addition to items that are not covered, Medicare beneficiaries must pay coinsurance, copayments, and deductibles, all of which increase their out-of-pocket costs and create a market for supplemental health insurance.

Nonqualified Annuities
A nonqualified annuity is purchased outside of an employer-provided retirement plan. After-tax dollars are used to fund a nonqualified annuity, so contributions are not deductible from gross income for income tax purposes. Taxes on interest or earnings in a nonqualified annuity are deferred until withdrawal. In a lump-sum distribution of a nonqualified annuity, the monies may be transferred into an IRA or similar vehicle to defer taxes additionally. Only a portion of a monthly annuity payment is taxed because each payment is partially principal that has been taxed and partially interest earned. The portion of the monthly payment that is excluded from taxes is determined by an exclusion ratio. The exclusion ratio is the total amount of premiums paid divided by the total expected payment amounts. If the expected return is based on a life expectancy or joint life expectancy, the Internal Revenue Service has tables and multipliers that are used to determine the total expected return. If the expected return is not based on a life expectancy, the total expected return is the sum of all amounts to be received. More...
National Family Caregiver Support Program

Housing - Residential Facilities and Voting Rights
Although the right to vote is fundamental in the United States, state law governs the manner in which this right is exercised. Although almost one-half of the states have passed laws addressing the voting rights of those living in residential facilities, these laws differ significantly. More...
