South Carolina Elder Law Attorney Answers Family’s Question about Elder Law

Question:  What is Elder Law?

Answer:  Among lawyers, there really is no clear definition for the term Elder Law. Why? Because it encompasses so many areas. Such as, Estate Planning, Medicaid eligibility, Medicare law, Social Security law, wills, trusts, probate, retirement planning, health care planning, disability, incapacity, dementia, Alzheimer’s; and the list goes on. Perhaps the best definition I have seen is “Elder Law is an area of law which applies a holistic approach to addressing the unique legal needs of senior citizens, including retirement benefits, estate planning, health care, and other issues.”
