GUEST SPEAKER RONNIE MELDRUM:

GUEST SPEAKER RONNIE MELDRUM:

Presents a tactic to prevent unexpected nursing home costs from evaporating the family nest egg. Thursday, February 23, 11 - Noon, Dining Room Picture this: Your spouse has made a permanent move to a nursing home. You donít have long-term care insurance, Medicare wonít cover the cost, and you have too much money to qualify for Medicaid - but not nearly enough to afford the nursing home bills. The monthly tab of $8000-$12,000 for a semi-private room is rapidly depleting your nest egg. Now-what?

This is where a Medicaid compliant annuity might rescue your retirement savings. You buy an immediate annuity owned by and payable to you that meets a number of specific requirements, transforming cash that would otherwise prevent your ill spouse from qualifying for Medicaid into an income stream the helps you preserve your quality of life. Medicaid starts covering the nursing home stay, and your monthly bills become manageable.
