Elder Law: The Ipug Trust for Asset Protection
A valuable tool in the Elder Law attorney's toolbox is the asset protection trust, aka, the Ipug Trust. In different states, these types of trust are given different names- ours is called the Ipug Trust. It is a legally acceptable Medicaid complaint trust that can be used to hold assets and allow eligibility for Medicaid or Veteran's Benefits.
