The Listen to Lawrence Letter: An Insurance Question

An insurance question… Read on:


You created an irrevocable Medicaid trust for me and now I notice that my homeowner’s insurance is still in our name and not in the name of the Trust. Does this have to be changed?


While we explain this to our clients at the meeting when signing the trust, this one is easy to forget about. So listen up folks. You should remain insured, but now we want you to call your insurance agent and make sure that your trust is an “additional insured.” We need everyone covered and in case of loss, we may want the insurance company to pay the trust directly.

I hope this helps! Please forward this information to your friends and relatives to share these informative answers to some very commonly asked questions.
