While you may not have the multi-billion dollar estates that these celebrities had, there are many lessons to be learned that apply to estates of all sizes. Family fights, unclear or ambiguous guidance, or even the complete absence of a plan—big name celebrities but common, everyday mistakes. (Max. 30). Gustavus boxed lunch will be served.

Eligibility for Medical Assistance and Medicare Savings Programs
Mon., Jun. 12 | 11:30 a.m. | SPCC Rm. 219 | Free
Minnesota seniors (age 65+) and disabled Minnesotans can access Medical Assistance (MA) to help with their healthcare needs, if they are within certain income and asset limits. Medicare Savings Programs (MSPs) may help qualified Medicare recipients cover the cost of their Medicare premiums, copays and deductibles. Many county residents are already accessing these programs. As the COVID public health emergency is expiring as of May 11, those on MA and other Minnesota healthcare programs will be asked to complete recertification processes. Recertification will occur in the coming months (mn.gov/dhs/renewmycoverage). Nicollet County Health and Human Services wants to inform current clients about what to expect regarding renewing their programs. Persons not currently on MA or MSPs also may attend, to learn about eligibility requirements and application processes for these programs. Medicare stuff (Max. 30). Gustavus boxed lunch will be served. Presented by Nicollet County Health and Human Services, Steph Dorweiler, Adult Programs and MNsure Team Lead, David Sellnow, Eligibility Worker, Medical Assistance for Long-Term Care, Jessica Thompson, Eligibility Worker, Adult Programs
