Today we released our February 2019 newsletter from R. F. Meyer & Associates.

February 2019This month’s edition features interesting stories on some important topics. They include:

  • This is the last year for a Social Security strategy that’s been popular in recent years, where couples time the claim of spousal benefits. Regulators have deemed the strategy a ‘loophole,’ and its availability is going away.
  • The Home Care benefit of Medicaid now is available in 50 states – recognizing the facts that home care is both preferable for most people, and cheaper for Medicaid than long-trm car in a nursing home.
  • Costs are really all over the board for long-term care insurance, according to a new study. If you are in the market for this insurance, it really pays to shop around.
  • A loved one who is suffering from dementia and is a gun owner poses special challenges. Read about how experts say the situation should be handled.
