Q: Can the State take away my home after I die since I am receiving Medi-Cal?

On Behalf of | Jun 9, 2021 | Estate Planning, Q&A, Trust And Estate Administration |

A: Not if you have the home in a living trust! While your home can be subject to a Medi-Cal recovery claim after your death, as of 2017, Medi-Cal can only go after assets in your name upon your death; the trick here is that if you create a living trust and transfer the home into the trust, then the home will not be considered belonging to you anymore for Medi-Cal purposes! Therefore, the house will pass to your designated beneficiaries free from Medi-Cal reimbursement claims and free from probate!
