Joley Eason Richmond Virginia May 2014

The May meeting was well-attended. Attorney Joley Eason provided an interactive presentation on estate planning, and particularly addressed unique issues that can arise from being a resident of Virginia, which has state laws which differ from the laws of surrounding states. Some of these differences were surprising, and Ms Eason answered many questions from the attendees concerning special circumstances.

Estate Planning is an important aspect of the life of a lung disease sufferer. Ms Eason discussed:

  1. What is a trust? Is there a minimum for a trust?
  2. The 5 year "Look Back" rules for trusts and medicaid
  3. When you should use a small estate affidavit
  4. Should joint accounts have 'right of survivorship'?
  5. What is the distribution process of an estate?
  6. Why you have to qualify as an executor
  7. Why a Will only covers probate assets
  8. Issues for 401K accounts, Stocks and Bank accounts
  9. How does Power of Attorney work in Virginia?
  10. "Gifting" limitations
  11. What is an Advance Medical Directive
  12. What "Living Wills" really are under under the law
