The Krause Agency is wonderful to work with. When you are engaged in highly technical elder law strategies, it’s important to know that everyone is on the same page and has the background to execute the plan correctly on a timely basis. It’s a team effort which requires a strong supporting cast when engaging in Medicaid or VA benefit planning. That’s why we work exclusively with The Krause Agency.

Attorney at The Hale Law Firm, P.C.
I have been working with The Krause Agency for 7-8 years now. I have found them to be easy to work with. Their staff is very knowledgeable regarding the Medicaid rules. Customer service and follow-up are very important to me, and the staff at Krause always returns phone calls and replies back to emails in a timely fashion. They are a pleasure to work with

I have been working with The Krause Agency for over 2 years now in conjunction with some of the top elder law attorneys in Northeast Ohio. I would recommend The Krause Agency to any agent looking to work with elder law attorneys that need Medicaid compliant annuities. The staff is top notch and makes the process a breeze.
