As we age and begin to look at our options for financial help, many of us will turn to Minnesota Medical Assistance (MA), MinnesotaCare or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). If you are just beginning to look into your options, first you must understand what each program is and whether you would qualify.

You know the old saying - "The only two things in life that are for certain are death and taxes."
Taxes - We all prepare for the inevitable tax day of April 15. Annually we spend time, money, and personal resources on the preparation of taxes. No one likes it but we all do it.
Death - More and more of us are planning for this inevitability. In a fraction of the time just one year of tax preparation takes you could have you funeral or memorial services planned and paid for.
