Refusal Letters

Refusal Letters

Solidify Your Client’s Annuity Contract

Refusal letters can sometimes be required when dealing with annuities and applying for Medicaid. Our office can obtain these letters on your client’s behalf, which provides them:

Verification of Contract Provisions
Assistance in the Medicaid Process
Eligibility for Benefits

Refusal Letters are letters from secondary market annuity buyers indicating their inability to purchase an annuity contract due to its restrictive provisions.  They confirm whether an annuity is irrevocable, non-assignable, or contains any cash value.  In Medicaid planning, some states may require this additional documentation to secure the viability of a Medicaid Compliant Annuity.

 

Refusal Letters may also be helpful in the case of an existing, non-compliant annuity owned by your client.  Many of these old annuities cannot be sold or altered, but do not meet the typical Medicaid Compliant Annuity requirements.  In these cases, Refusal Letters can support your client’s case for undue hardship and may help them gain eligibility for benefits.

A Refusal Letters may be right for your client if they…
Own an annuity that cannot be sold.
Are seeking Medicaid benefits.
Need assistance in proving the terms of their contract.
