LEGACY PLANNING

In this presentation, we will share the advantages of leaving behind a Will and the consequences of not doing so. We will also outline the essential components of a valid Will and examine some common structures and gifts, including gifts to charitable organizations. We will end with an overview of the Lasting Power of Attorney and the Advance Medical Directive, what purpose they serve and how they defer from Wills.

Participants will gain useful knowledge of the various options and legal instruments available in planning for how their assets and affairs will be managed in the event of their deaths or incapacities.

The talk will comprise the following sections:

A. Why execute a Will? What happens if I do nothing?

B. What information has to be included in a Will?

C. Charitable gifts – are they valid?

D. Lasting Power of Attorney

E. Advance Medical Directive

F. Q&A
