ADVANCED WEBINAR
Understanding the SSI Transfer Penalty

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific)
HOST: Justice in Aging
FEE: None | REGISTER

The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program has many complicated financial eligibility rules, including the treatment of resources or assets. Applicants and recipients cannot simply give away countable assets to gain eligibility for SSI. Similarly they cannot decline assets that they are entitled to receive, such as inheritances, to establish or maintain their eligibility. An SSI applicant or recipient who transfers an asset for less than fair market value or declines to receive an asset could be subject to the transfer of asset penalty, becoming ineligible for SSI benefits for up to 36 months.

During this webinar, we will examine the transfer of asset penalty and ways to minimize or avoid it, by covering the little-known exceptions to the rule.

PRESENTERS
Kate Lang, Senior Attorney, Justice in Aging
John Whitelaw, Advocacy Director at Community Legal Aid Society, Inc.

WEBCAST
Overview of Guardianship and Alternatives to Guardianship

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific)
HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
FEE: None | REGISTER

Lawyers working with older adults are often confronted with questions about guardianship, other types of agents, and alternative forms of decision-making.

This webinar will help lawyers understand a guardian’s responsibility and authority, as well as the roles of other agents, like default health care surrogates, health care agents, representative payees, joint account holders, and authorized signers. The presenters will explain how guardianship and its alternatives are created and terminated, and the responsibilities of individuals serving in different decision-making roles.

Participants in this webinar will:

  • Be able to describe three differences between power of attorney and a guardianship or conservatorship;
  • Know what documents to review to see if a person claiming legal authority has that authority;
  • Be able to explain how voluntary planning can be modified or revoked; and
  • Understand the fundamental elements of guardianship or conservatorship.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

David Godfrey, Senior Attorney, American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging

WEBCAST
Financial Exploitation and Medicare Fraud

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific)
HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
FEE: None | REGISTER

Medicare fraud hurts individuals and is harmful to the Medicare Trust Fund. The Medicare Trust fund loses between $60 and $90 billion dollars every year to fraud, waste and abuse. Individuals can lose access to Medicare services because their identity has been misappropriated by someone else. Law and aging advocates play an important role in helping older adults prevent, detect, and report Medicare fraud and abuse.

In this free webcast, California’s Senior Medicare Patrol will teach advocates how to identify potential Medicare scams and report fraud and abuse to the Senior Medicare Patrol. Justice in Aging will highlight potential exploitive Medicare practices and outlines strategies to help prevent exploitation.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

PRESENTERS:
Georgia Burke, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
Micki Nozaki, Director, Senior Medicare Patrol, California Health Advocates
