Medicaid Asset Protection Trust

What is a MAPT?


A Medicaid Asset Protection Trust (MAPT) is an irrevocable trust which legally removes the assets you place into the trust from your assets.  This way they do not count toward your assets when you apply for Medicaid.  The trustee of your trust (not yourself) will have legal control over the assets.  This is a proactive planning tool that can be used for those who expect to need long term care.  It must be done at least 5 years prior to applying for Medicaid in order to be effective.


What Will AMC Legal Do?

I will listen to what your concerns are and draft the appropriate documents to meet these needs. I will walk you through the process, educate you on what you need to know and help you make the best decisions. Then I will create high quality documents customized to your unique situation and needs. I go beyond the standard form documents to address issues that most people don’t even think about.

Estate Planning Packages
