Long-Term Care Issues for Farmers and Strategies to Protect Assets
Robert Moore, J.D. | Agriculture and Resource Law Program, Ohio State University

Long-term care costs can exceed $100,000/year. Many farm operations do not have adequate income to absorb these substantial long-term care costs. When savings run out, farm assets may need to be sold which jeopardizes the farming operation for the current owners and future generations. This session will discuss long-term care issues for farm operations and address strategies that can be used to help mitigate the risk of long-term care costs.

4:10pm - 5:00pm CDT
