Happy New Year and welcome to the January 2021 e-newsletter from R. F. Meyer & Associates.

Earlier today we issued our January 2021 edition of the R. F. Meyer & Associates e-newsletter. If you did not receive it by email, please find a link below to download the full PDF version from our website.

Today, with COVID-19 vaccines being deployed as I write, the Buckeyes football team playing for a national championship tonight, and the Browns winning an NFL playoff game last night, the new year dawns with a season of hope.

We recognize that the COVID pandemic will continue to threaten the world, and especially the health of our senior population, for months to come. But with the hopefulness of a new year, we wish for the wild success for the vaccination program.

In the January 2021 newsletter

I also hope you find the articles in this January 2021 edition of our newsletter to be interesting and worthwhile. We again cover several topics that should be of interest to our Elder Law practice clientele, with articles about:

  • With COVID vaccinations beginning in mid-December, the resumption of routine visits with loved ones in nursing homes is on the horizon. You may be able to visit in the near future, but precautions will still be necessary.
  • Do you need an attorney for even “simple” Medicaid planning? This depends on your situation, but in most cases, the prudent answer is “yes.”
  • Buying long-term care insurance is one way to protect against the high cost of long-term care. However, this type of insurance may not be for everyone, so consider all your options.
  • Many employers offer critical illness insurance as part of their benefit package. What is this insurance and is it worth purchasing? Before paying for a plan, you should read the fine print and consider alternatives.

As always, please contact the law offices of R. F. Meyer & Associates for help with any Elder Law, Estate Planning or Probate Law matter. We wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2021.


Richard. F. Meyer, Esq.
