Maximize Public Benefits
There are countless government programs available, each with different offerings and eligibility rules. Often, knowing your options and how to apply is truly overwhelming.
Fortunately, if you’ve been significantly injured, you’re likely entitled to many benefits.
It’s critical that you plan for your benefits before settling your case. For many, it will be too late after the case settles.
Your personal injury lawyer won’t typically know your options or the timing requirements. Their job is to get you money. While they work on your case, we can work with them to preserve your benefits.
Here are some questions you should be asking:
Which government benefits are for me?
What would make me eligible?
How do I apply?
How long will the benefits last?
How much will they provide?
Are there ways to increase my benefits?
How will my settlement affect my benefits?
Why is my lawyer worried about Medicare?
Why is the defendant asking about my benefits?
How do I work with my lawyer to maximize my benefits?
Will a Special Needs Trust save me money?
