Revocable Trust – Medi-Cal Protection

The benefits of a Revocable Trust just got better.

As of January 2017 those utilizing Medi-Cal are no longer required to engage in more complex legal strategies to avoid any Medi-Cal claim against the estate upon death.

A regular revocable trust is now sufficient to avoid any Medi-Cal claim.

Thus, transferring your real property into a Revocable Trust not only helps avoid probate, but also prevents your estate from being diminished by any Medi-Cal payback claim.

It is also advisable to transfer or relate to the Revocable Trust any other significant assets, such as life insurance, annuities, or retirement accounts.
