“Thought for the Day” #869 – by Stephen R. Elville, J.D., LL.M.

Five of the nation’s leading elder law attorneys have announced their formation of the Trump Policy Analysis Group (TPAG).  This special focus group will analyze proposed changes to the laws likely to occur in the new Administration, and their effects on older Americans and persons with disabilities.  After thorough consideration of impacts on Social Security and Medicare, Medicaid, tax policy, special-needs planning, and veterans benefits, TPAG will offer planning recommendations that will likely influence the thinking of elder law attorneys across the country.  One of the stated goals of TPAG is the preservation and/or enhancement of the quality of life and health care of seniors and those with disabilities.  More to come in the New Year about TPAG’s important work and opinions.
