Advanced issues associated with Special Needs Planning, Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation, Fair Housing, Long Term Care Insurance, and Medicaid Benefits Planning and Estate Recovery will be discussed in depth.  

Also covered will be important legislative updates and case law developments, using geriatric care managers in the practice of Elder and Special Needs Law, healthcare advance directive planning and recent changes affecting Social Security Benefits Planning. 

Planned by the NCBA Elder and Special Needs Law Section.
