InterActive Legal and Cariloop Announce Partnership

Companies Join Forces to Improve Strategic Planning For Elder Care

Cariloop

Dallas, TX
April 16, 2015

Cariloop announced today its strategic partnership with InterActive Legal, the premier Knowledge Company for lawyers specializing in Elder Law, Estate, and Special Needs Planning.

This partnership enables Cariloop to seamlessly provide its case management tools and concierge coaching services to the thousands of specialist lawyers already relying upon InterActive Legal as they guide clients and families through the maze of elder care, one of the most intricate parts of the elder planning process.

"Care for one's parents, or one's spouse, involves almost every challenge – medical, financial, legal, and emotional. One of our goals at InterActive Legal is to provide the very best resources to the thousands of lawyers who rely upon us to help them satisfy their clients' needs," stated Michael Graham, CEO of InterActive Legal. "The Cariloop partnership enables us to do just that. Cariloop's unique tools and services, including particularly the on demand concierge service, is of great value in helping clients plan for and manage care during difficult life transitions."

"As a nation, we place some of the most complex requirements upon those least likely to understand. More than half of those living long enough to need care also need support through programs like Medicaid. Lack of understanding, and failure to consult experts in advance, often means that more of the family funds are spent than needed to be. These are the areas where the attorney experts usually save the family far, far more than they cost. We educate, provide the document drafting tools, and the community that such lawyers need," Graham, continued. "Families need an integrated approach."

As elder care considerations become more and more common amongst our baby boomer population, Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorneys are playing a bigger role in how families plan for the future. Cariloop's new portal, scheduled to be released to the public in May 2015, will enable people to privately work together as a unit and access licensed or certified professionals that can guide them as they make decisions together.

It was the very idea of customized planning and simplicity of use for families that attracted Graham to the mission of Cariloop.

"It is their combination of talent, vision of the future, and ability to humanize technology. Cariloop represents a great blend of product and service. An experience like none other for me personally when I used it for my 96-year-old father transitioning from independent living this year to either assisted living or long-term care from a fractured pelvis. InterActive Legal wants that same experience for our all of our attorneys and their clients," said Graham.

With the ability to potentially work with thousands of legal professionals across the country, the partnership serves as a major building block for Cariloop in their growth strategy.

"We couldn't be more excited to work with the InterActive Legal team and their membership base," said Michael Walsh, CEO of Cariloop. "Too many families and caregivers are going through this stressful process alone and without a plan in place. By now equipping InterActive Legal members with Cariloop tools and coaches, these Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorneys can provide a truly amazing experience for their clients in this situation."

Addictions and Impaired Clients: Estate and Related Planning Considerations

Drug use is on the rise in this country and 23.5 million Americans are addicted to alcohol and drugs. That’s approximately one in every 10 Americans over the age of 12. No estate, tax or financial planner can assume that a significant number of client families are not affected (they are). The reality is that the practitioner must understand the commonality of these issues and guide clients, draft documents, and administer estate plans, trusts and financial plans accordingly. Learn how to take steps, from a legal and planning perspective, to protect family members and other beneficiaries from further harm, depleting family assets, and further damage to the whole “family” unit (however the client may choose to define that term).

The SECURE Act has been part of the estate planning landscape for more than a year, but some planners are understandably still considering how (or if) it impacts their clients. A lack of regulatory guidance has generated further confusion, as professionals try to work within a framework of regulations that doesn’t match the framework of the new law. Add to that a seemingly contradictory IRS publication – which fortunately appears to be an inadvertent error – and it’s no wonder planning for retirement benefits remains a hot topic for discussion.

Blockchain Technology and Estate Planning: Cryptocurrencies, NFTs, E-Wills, and Other Ways Blockchain May Affect Modern Estates

Digital assets were only the beginning. Today, there is a new intersection of technology and property interests that most estate planners – in fact, most people - don’t yet understand. Slowly, but surely, estate planners are starting to see clients with asset portfolios that include cryptocurrency and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Much like tangible property or other intangible interests, these are assets of value, and therefore must be addressed as part of the estate plan. But unlike more traditional forms of property, understanding the nature of these assets requires some background information, and answers to some basic questions. What exactly are they? How are they owned? How can they be transferred? And maybe most importantly in a time of potential tax law changes, how are they valued?
