Program Description


Please note that this program is being held at the library's location, not virtually through Zoom.

As we age, long-term care becomes statistically likely, but it's so expensive. We have all heard the horror stories about someone losing their homes and the misinformed advice through the grapevine of "Just transfer the assets to your kids," "It's ok to give $16,000 per year," and "You won't need care!"

These statements are not necessarily true. Long Term care planning MUST be done the right way or your assets could be at risk. Learn the truth from an experienced elder law attorney. Walk away with an understanding of how you can properly protect your life savings, learn how Medicaid really works and how it can help pay for long-term care costs, and strategies to protect money if a crisis arises.

About the Presenter: according to his mother, Steven L. Rubin has trained to be an attorney, his dream job, since he was 5 years old. Attorney Rubin was born in New Haven and graduated from Cheshire High and the University of Connecticut and then attended Widener University School of Law in Pennsylvania.  

While Steve was in law school, his mother was diagnosed with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and given less than six months to live. He was thrust into a number of roles that his clients often find themselves in: caregiver, advocate, provider and concerned loved one.

Seeing how his mother’s dedication and belief that her son could make a difference helped her live almost three years, his own passion for the law increased. Today he helps his clients deal with tough issues such as death, incapacity, disability, special needs, social security, asset protection and taxes, and provides assistance in the best and least stressful way possible.

Most of his passion is from knowing what it’s like to be on the other side of the desk. 

Steve's professional and community involvement includes:

  • President-Elect of the Connecticut Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys

  • Board member of the Life Care Planning Law Firm Association, and a member of its membership committee.

  • ALS Association

  • American Cancer Society  

  • Veterans Legal Clinic

When not working, Steven enjoys reading books, watching and attending sporting events, and spending time with his dog and family.
