Estate Planning & Trusts: What You Need to Know
Most people don’t like to think about dying, but it is something that everyone has to face. What will happen to the money you worked hard to save? Who will get your house, your car, or your jewelry? Most people put off planning their estate, but putting off these decisions can cost your heirs considerable money and anguish. In order to ensure that your wishes about who should get what are heeded and that costs and inconveniences of probate and estate taxes are avoided after your death, it is critical to do estate planning now. This workshop will help you understand the
types of estate planning moves that are most likely to be helpful for many
people. Proper estate planning takes a relatively short time, and will give you and your heirs tremendous peace of mind. With estate planning, you can make sure your medical and business decisions can be made by someone you trust if incapacity strikes—without court interference and with as little disruption as possible to your loved ones. Join a local estate planning attorney as you learn the most important aspects of this often
daunting topic. NOTE: Your class fee includes bringing a guest if you’d like; please provide their name at registration.
