Chapter News and Events

Featured Article: Update on DHS' Treatment of Non-Homestead Life Estates and Intervention by MN NAELA Chapter: Laura Zdychnec of Long, Reher, Hanson & Price, P.A.

Sometime in 2010, the Department of Human Services ("DHS") distributed what has become known as the "Life Estate Memo" to county social services agencies. The undated and unsigned Memo postulates that a non-homestead life estate held by a community spouse must be counted against his or her community spouse resource allowance ("CSRA"), but will not be counted if held by the institutionalized spouse.  Because the Memo provides for differing treatment depending on which spouse owns the life estate, it also states that married couples must identify which of their combined resources will make up the CSRA before an eligibility determination is made.
