Common Mistakes in Estate Planning

Estate planning is an important process that ensures a person’s wishes are carried out after death and during incapacitation. A thorough estate plan often consists of several documents designed to accomplish a variety of goals. While an estate plan may be unique to the individual, there are common mistakes that sometimes occur. During this presentation, we will share some common estate planning pitfalls and discuss steps you can take to create an estate plan that will provide peace of mind for you and your family.

President’s Message regarding price increase:  Last year we were able to hold the line on the cost of our breakfast sessions, but we were notified that cost per attendee will go up by $2.50 ($17.50 total). Therefore, we have no choice but to pass this on to those of you who attend. The Board approved this change reluctantly and only for one year in the hope that we can find additional sponsors that would enable us to reduce the cost to you. As you know, a portion of the breakfast is already subsidized by Central Bank and Trust.
