Massachusetts homestead law recognizes that your home is a special type of possession which is different from other property. As a result, your home may be protected even in circumstances where other assets may need to be sold. This can impact your ability to qualify for Medicaid benefits.
Massachusetts homestead law, and the protections which the law provides, can be complicated. It is important that you understand what your rights and obligations are and that you do what you need to in order to protect your home.
