As every year passes, we realize life isn't going to slow down. It feels like things are changing faster than ever in all aspects of life, both personal and professional. We strive to stay on top of everything that comes our way in the elder law industry to keep our members in the know so they don't have to spend their valuable time combing through the latest law changes and the newest business management technology that may come along.
This year ElderCounsel turned 10 years old. This in itself was a milestone to celebrate. We are taking a moment to look back at three changes that came our way in 2018, some you may have heard of and others might be news to you.
#1: ElderDocx is now online!
ElderDocx is now available anywhere, anytime, on any device with an Internet connection. The easy to navigate interface integrates nicely with our Partners at WealthCounsel and provides a secure, efficient, and collaborative drafting experience. (Download a list of all the documents that can be created using ElderDocx.)
#2: Customizable Marketing Content at Your Fingertips
Early this year we launched the Practice Development Center as part of the Practice Enhancement Program. This is a new level of marketing support for lawyers, including a library of customizable marketing content, materials, and analytics. From blog posts to newsletters, we've got you covered with topics ranging from Medicaid planning, to dementia, to estate planning.
#3: Drastic Changes to VA Planning
On September 18, the Department of Veterans Affairs amended the rules regarding eligibility for VA pension that drastically changed VA planning. We've updated ElderDocx to incorporate the changes and have added documents to help our members assist better assist Veterans. We also provided several marketing resources to our members to get out in front of this big industry change including this comprehensive whitepaper.
