Q & A - Thorny issues
The recent Residential Care Subsidy RCS webinar highlighted the amount of confusion and uncertainty regarding RCS entitlement and policy and generated significantly more questions than could be addressed in the Q & A session.
This free follow up webinar will allow practitioners to ask questions about RCS and issues that may have come to light following the webinar. Offered for the first time ever, this is your opportunity to ask all the questions you have ever had of both a practitioner and the Ministry.
The session is intended to provide specific and practical guidance for all general practitioners and staff, particularly those who deal with asset planning, including Wills and estates, property and family law and those who have mature clients.
It will assist practitioners to provide sound advice to their clients that is as future proofed as is possible.
Those registering will get best value if they submit their questions in writing before the webinar. Please try to submit questions in writing the week beforehand. However, questions will still be able to be asked on the day via the webinar toolbar and the presenters will do their best to answer those as fully as possibly.
Questions should be within the scope of the topic and not be in respect to specific advice on individual cases currently before the Ministry – those types of questions should be directed to the delegated decision makers; Centralised Services – Residential Care (whose details you have been issued with previously). All questions submitted will be collated, grouped into topic categories and, where appropriate, answered as such.
Busting myths and fallacies - up to date knowledge of current MSD policies, how to give clients realistic advice around residential care subsidy outcomes, options for clients who are potentially compromised.
Anyone advising mature clients; lawyers, staff solicitors, associates, Partners and Directors as well as Legal Executives. Pitched to a level appropriate for both those who have experience and wish to up-skill regarding new developments and those who are new to the area.
Theresa Donnelly, Senior Solicitor, Ministry of Social Development and Vicki Ammundsen, Director, Vicki Ammundsen Trust Law.
