The Caregiver's Gratitude List

A loved one's illness can come out of nowhere. And when it does, everything changes. If you're caring for an elderly loved one, you're not alone. Former first lady Rosalynn Carter said it first and she said it best: "There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers." Caregiving is universal. It is difficult work and most people feel ill equipped for the job. It's not like anyone gives you a manual to tell you what to do. People are quick to talk about the demands caregiving places on people. While caregiving is often viewed as a burden, less is said about the

Millions of Medicare Part D Enrollees Face Increases in Cost

Millions of current enrollees in stand-alone Medicare Part D prescription drug plans will face premium and other cost increases next year unless they switch to lower-cost plans during the open enrollment period that began Oct. 15 and ends on Dec. 7, a new KFF analysis finds. This includes the two-thirds of Part D stand-alone drug plan (PDP) enrollees not receiving low-income subsidies—nine million enrollees—who will face higher monthly premiums if they keep their current plan in 2020. For instance, the 1.9 million enrollees without low-income subsidies in the Humana Walmart Rx plan—the third most popular stand-alone plan in 2019—will see their monthly premium more than double, on average, if

ABLE Accounts

On December 19th, 2019, the Stephen Beck, Jr. Achieving a Better Life Experience Act—known as the ABLE Act—will be five years old. Why are we excited? Because this five-year-old has influenced 41,000 people to open ABLE accounts that can earn tax-free income. The ABLE Act allows an estimated eight million Americans with disabilities to save money for qualified disability expenses for their short-term needs and long-term future. ABLE account holders can use the funds for qualified disability-related expenses including housing and maintenance, as well as costs related to employment, transportation, health, technology and financial and benefits planning.

The Transparent Law Firm

By William H. (Kim) Kimbrough, Jr. Most people don’t like lawyers. I totally understand where those people are coming from. One of the main problems people have with our profession is the way we bill. Most lawyers work by the hour. And they send bills, typically monthly, showing the time worked in increments of the hour. You will see things like: .5 hours for reviewing pleadings .2 hours for telephone conference with client .2 hours for paralegal, copying documents When the client adds up all the time and multiply it by the hourly fee, there's the monthly bill. It's a slow burn for clients. In my opinion, the real problem is that the client doesn’t know the amount of the final bill until aft
