Catch the great articles in our April newsletter

By elderlaw

We’ve released the April newsletter from R.F. Meyer & Associates.

April newsletterArticles in the new edition address topics including Medicare, Medicaid, retirement savings choices and a new federal law aimed at cutting abuse of the elderly. To wit:

  • Medicare recipients should be on the lookout for new Medicaid Cards from the government, and should be wary of new card-related scams;
  • Transfers of assets within five years of applying for Medicaid can invoke a penalty period. How do you prove you made the transfers for purposes other than to qualify for Medicaid?
  • The choice of beneficiaries for your IRA, SEP or 401(k) can have significant tax implications. Here’s a whole article on the rules and concerns about the choices.
  • A new federal law is designed to address the growing problem of elder abuse. The article addresses what’s in the law and the efforts to raise awareness of elder abuse – both financial and physical.

In other news, a reminder: R.F. Meyer & Associates relocated to new offices April 2, 2018. Our new address is 450 W. Wilson Bridge Rd., Suite 380, Worthington, Ohio 43085. Our phone numbers changed Jan. 2 to 614-407-7900 (main), 614-407-7905 (fax) and 866-883-5337 (toll-free). Our website remains www.ElderLaw.US.

As you have been notified several times now, these changes follow the amicable dissolution of my former partnership practice, Browning & Meyer Co., LPA. My friend and former partner William Browning and I went our separate ways at the close of 2017, with me founding R.F. Meyer & Associates and Bill joining the Columbus law firm of Isaac, Wiles, Burkholder & Teetor. Bill remains for now at our old address, 300 W. Wilson Bridge Rd., Suite 250, and can be reached at 614-471-0085. His email is, and the Isaac Wiles website is If you are a client of William Browning and no longer want to receive this R.F.

Our new offices at R.F. Meyer & Associates are just a few buildings down West Wilson Bridge Road from our former location, and still in Worthington’s Officescape Corporate Center. We believe the new location will be easier to find and provide better access for our clientele with mobility issues. Disabled parking spaces are numerous at the front entrance, leading to an easy-access wheelchair ramp, and parking in general is more plentiful.

As we settle in, we hope Mother Nature settles in to spring 2018 and finally produces some warmer weather! Thanks for continuing to read our newsletter and we look forward to working with you.
