In many cases, disabilities occur as a result of an accident. Lawsuits are filed and the cases are resolved by settlement or by jury verdict resulting in the disabled person receiving a large amount of cash. In these cases, it is important to complete if your case is being handled under the worker’s compensation system or if you are or will be receiving Medicare in the future. A Medicare Set-Aside is a special kind of account or trust created to reimburse the government for past and future medical expenses related to your injury. Whether you need a Medicare Set-Aside depends on the amount of your settlement and when you will begin to receive Medicare benefits. These rules often change so please speak with your special needs planner to find out if you might need a Medicare Set Aside before you are scheduled to sign a settlement agreement.
