Do You Understand Your Long-Term Care Insurance Policy Well Enough to Use It?

Many people have long-term care insurance but don't understand the policy well enough to use it. Since starting with Rothkoff Law Group in 2010, I have assisted dozens of clients with filing long-term care insurance claims. The good news is that many of our now clients had the foresight to purchase these policies anywhere from 10-25 years ago. Since that time, they have continued to pay their often-increasing premiums and rarely reviewed the actual policy. Based upon my experience, I have come to realize many people do not familiarize [...]

Rothkoff Law Group Adapts Well to Operational Changes

By Jacinda Graham, Client Services Director   I am proud to report that the team at Rothkoff Law Group has adapted well to operational changes required by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Life Insurance – What Does the Death Benefit of $X Mean?

A number of both elderly and disabled individuals that our elder law firm serves in Southern New Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania have a Life Insurance Policy, most of whom have purchased many years ago.  They purchased these policies for a number of different reasons including to pay for a funeral upon death, and/or to leave to their family when they pass away.  It is not uncommon for a client to tell me that they have no idea what the death benefit of their policy is, nor do they realize [...]

Advantages of Pre-Planning Your Funeral

Advantages of Pre-Planning Your Funeral Many people avoid discussing or even thinking about their own funerals. We do this because it is unpleasant and makes us confront our own mortality. However, taking the initiative to plan your own funeral provides a number of advantages. Planning your funeral gives you the opportunity to shop around and explore the many options that you will be presented with, including writing your own obituary, choosing a funeral home, determining if you want to be buried or cremated, and a number of other decisions that you may not even [...]

Why is It Important to Plan for Long Term Care Costs?

Why is it important to plan for long term care costs? I frequently have conversations with clients and their family members about what kind of assistance or planning will be most beneficial for them, and hopefully give them some form of ‘guarantee’ that whatever is done today will remain the most effective going forward.  This planning might involve making a decision about whether to keep a loved one at home with care, or move to an assisted living or nursing facility.  It can also involve a decision about what [...]

When Is It Too Late to Consult With An Attorney?

When Is It Too Late to Consult With An Attorney? This question is posed to me multiple times per week from people that contact our Cherry Hill and Philadelphia offices.  Many times, these people are family members of an elderly person that previously encouraged the elder to seek assistance with long term care planning, and the decisions that may go along with it.  Unfortunately, this advice was not heeded.  This may be because people hope that if they don’t plan for it, then it won’t happen.  Regardless of the [...]

Why Elder Care Law?

A little over three years ago, I made the decision to leave the Assisted Living industry and make the transition to working in Elder Law, with the Rothkoff Elder and Disability Law Group.  After a dozen years of working in assisted living and memory care, many of my colleagues and professional partners were surprised and curious to know what my motivation was for the change in my profession, as they knew how much I loved working in my communities with my residents.  Although I loved that environment and did [...]

My Grandmother – Still Enjoying Good Times with the Family

In my last entry, I wrote about my 87 year old grandmother and her recent diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease.  Like so many other people in this age group, my grandmother also suffers from hearing loss.  As she has poor short term memory and struggles to converse when there is a lot of back ground noise, it can be difficult for her to interact with people in group situations.  As her family, one of our fears is that she will start to opt out of holiday gatherings, celebrations, and other [...]

Telling Grandmom She Can’t Drive Anymore

Everyday I talk to our client s who are dealing with issues that go hand in hand with caring for an aging loved one.  Without fail, one of these issues is how to handle the decision and conversation regarding when a loved one can no longer safely be behind the wheel of a car.  As people pour out their hearts and fears, they normally stop and ask if I’ve heard this story a hundred times.  The answer is yes, but every situation is different.  And not only have I [...]
