Dr. Sabrina Scott educates married couples to the unique financial opportunities afforded by marriage and the importance of a well thought out retirement plan in order to provide income for life in the event of one spouse’s death.
DECATUR, GA, October 11, 2018: Dr. Sabrina Scott, co-founder of Red Feather Financial, has posted a new blog on the firm’s website entitled “Losing A Spouse Doesn’t Have To Mean Losing Income.” Ms. Scott helps clarify the role of proper financial planning to maintain the quality of life for the surviving spouse.
Scott writes, “The institution of marriage offers many unique opportunities aside from the obvious ones such as companionship and family” She elaborates, ”Marriage offers unique financial planning opportunities in the form of tax breaks as well as social security income for both spouses at retirement.”
“However if one spouses passes on,” says Scott, “the loss of one social security income could have a huge detrimental effect on the surviving spouse when accustomed to living on a certain amount. “A well-executed retirement plan,” according to Scott, “can make all the difference especially without having to dip into resources available for long-term care.”
As Scott points out, “Many couples are not aware that there are ways to set up financial plans to protect resources and still qualify for Medicaid and to guarantee income for the rest of your life even due to the loss of income should one spouse pass on.”

Sabrina Scott learned about Veterans Benefits and Medicaid when her parents sought legal services for long-term care.

She co-founded Red Feather Financial with Victoria Collier to help those who want to have a plan in place in order not to outlive their resources and who do not want to be a burden to their children.
