Rhode Island Elder Law Attorney - Daily Money Management
Elder Law Attorney for Rhode Island, Eastern Connecticut and Southeastern Massachusetts
Managing household finances and running a home can sometimes be overwhelming. These tasks become even more burdensome as we age and depending on adult children, who are often balancing raising their own families with a job, to take on this responsibility can lead to problems for both parties.
Connelly Law Offices, Ltd.'s Professional Fiduciaries provide daily money management services to individuals. Because of our background in elder law, we include household money management, bill paying services, create planning scenarios for families, and advocacy with insurance companies and creditors.
It is Connelly Law's goal to help independent seniors stay independent as long as possible while providing their family with a sense of relief and comfort. For over four decades, we have helped thousands of clients navigate the often unfamiliar waters of the aging process.
Who Needs a Daily Money Manager?
Older adults can benefit from the services of a DMM as the task of handling bills, deposits, and payments becomes much more challenging as we enter our later years
People who are constantly on the road for work or pleasure
Those who prefer to pay someone to handle their daily finances
Busy professionals who have more money than time
Persons with disabilities that prevent them from being able to handle their financial matters themselves
High net worth individuals and families with complex financial lives
What Does a Daily Money Manager (DMM) Do at Connelly Law?
The expertise of DMMs covers a broad range of tasks. The actual work they do depends on their background and client need; however, the scope of personal financial services generally includes:
Bill paying, including calls to payees regarding incorrect bills and preparation of payments for client approval.
Reconciling checking accounts and investment statements.
Preparing and making bank deposits.
Organizing tax documents.
Negotiating with creditors.
Reviewing medical insurance papers and verifying proper processing of claims.
Providing general organization of financial papers and systems.
Referring clients to legal, tax, and investment professionals and to community resources.
What Other Services Do We Provide?
Accepting responsibility to act as power-of-attorney or representative payee for SSI
Fiduciary services such as trustee, executor, conservator, guardian, or health care proxy
Preparing budgets for spending plans.
Preparing plans to reduce debt.
Can't I Hire a Friend to Manage My Money?
Perhaps you could, and the low cost may be appealing, but asking even a well-intentioned amateur to handle necessities like monthly bill payments, tax preparation, balancing checkbooks, decoding medical bills and negotiating with creditors can be risky as personal financial matters become more complicated. And the growing risk of elder financial abuse is well documented. A professional daily money manager can protect what you have worked for and ensure that all bills and obligations are paid on time.
