We have missed learning with you in-person at our Community Education meetings but we can still get together and get smart on Zoom!   If you are interested in attending this community education, please register here. If you have any questions, please email Jill at facesorg1@verizon.net.

COMMUNITY EDUCATION is TUESDAY, October 27th from 7-8:30pm on Zoom, and it is free and open to the public.

Our October Speaker is Attorney Steve Burns of the law firm Park Sensenig Attorneys. www.parksensenig.com

Estate Planning & Disabiliites

Planning for persons with disabilities encompasses more than just Special Needs Trusts, but this is the primary tool used to protect and manage assets for an individual with a disability. Typical concerns may include sheltering a future inheritance, an inheritance already received, a personal injury settlement, accrued assets from a job, gifts from family members, or child support. Failure to utilize a Special Needs Trust can result in quickly exhausting personal assets, leaving individuals to rely solely on public benefit programs.

Learn about Special Needs Trusts, ABLEnow, and how they fit into your own estate planning. This workshop is geared towards parents and caregivers for individuals with special needs of all ages.
