About the Course:

Understand How the Public Benefits System Affects Your Practice

Barbara and Bill have been married for 40 years. Bill is a Korean War veteran. He starts developing a mild stage of Alzheimer’s. Their son fell off a ladder and broke his back and now receives disability benefits. Their daughter has never worked because she has a bipolar disorder. How does Barbara get Bill the best long-term care? What is the difference between the benefits their son and daughter receive? What does their home care provider need to know?

In public benefits practice, every day is a bar exam. Can you take the “ball of yarn” jumbled facts of real-life cases and pull out the important issues? Let our distinguished faculty walk you through the maze of government benefits and show you the traps you can easily avoid.
