Ok, it’s legal, but is it, Ethical?
Let me ask this; When someone takes legal deductions when they do their income tax returns rather than pay taxes on 100% of their gross income, unethical?
If you answer yes to that, the Government thanks you.
Obviously as a Certified Medicaid Planner™ , ALTCS Planner and a Fiduciary I feel that ALTCS and Veterans Benefits Planning is ethical, here’s WHY.
It was a beautiful day in the spring of 2004. I was in Tucson, Arizona. I had organized what I liked to call a “Fun Shop.” I call my seminars Fun Shops because who wants to go to a work-shop, anyway? I held the Fun Shop at a unique assisted living community initially built as a private mansion in 1926. It has a chapel on the property that is used to hold meetings. So, I was literally on stage at the front of the chapel, and I was to speak on a little-known benefit called at the time the “The Veteran’s Improved Pension with Aid and Attendance, and ALTCS benefits planning.”
I enjoy doing seminars, but as a young man, I was shy and could barely think about standing up in front of a group of people and speaking. When I say that now to someone that knows me, they say, “You Shy!” I had overcome this fear and now used that energy in my presentation and have learned to have fun with the attendees.
Once I was done with my presentation, I walked down off the stage and to the back of the room to greet the attendees and answer their questions. I was done with my seminar; a lady approached me. She was an attractive, fit woman in her 70’s. She stood with a healthy posture. I guessed her to be about 70 years old.
She said to me, “Can I ask you a question?” I love to joke with people and respond, “I’m married if that is your question!” She laughs and says, “No, that’s not my question.” She goes on to say, “I recently lost my husband, and we spent all our money caring for him. I now have $25,000 to live on for the rest of my life.”
She goes on to ask, “Is there any way I can go back and get these benefits?” As I looked into her eyes, I saw the sadness and fear that she had. The look in her eyes was the fear of running out of money. I had to say, “No, there isn’t, mam.”
From that day on, I vowed to do everything I could to prevent this from being someone else’s story. She created a passion in me that continues to energize me to this day.
