TREASURE COAST - Treasure Coast estate planning attorneys, Robert J. Kulas and Andreas A. Kulas, attended a national educational summit in San Diego, during the first week of October hosted by the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys.
The academy is an exclusive national educational organization that has cultivated excellence in estate planning by providing member attorneys with research and critical updates in estate, business planning, and tax laws for nearly two decades.
At the conference, the Kulas attorneys benefited from the educational training sessions focused on tax law updates and the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid documents and other Medicaid updates, $5 million exemption and portability, international estate planning, social media ethics for attorneys and planning for blended families.
Many Americans will need Medicaid planning in their lifetime. One entire morning of the summit focused on incorporating Medicaid pre-planning into a law firm's systems, from educating the community to consulting with clients.
The education department also reviewed new Medicaid trust documents that academy attorneys now have available to help their clients "pre-plan" to qualify for Medicaid and preserve their assets from nursing home costs.
"The academy provides us with access to hundreds of experienced attorneys in estate planning across the country, the ability to provide unparalleled education and service to our clients, the newest strategies, and consistent updates to changes in the law," said the Kulas.
"This event provided the education, tools and resources to help our clients and families plan ahead for the possibility of needing long-term health care."
