Estate Planning: The Essentials

January 23rd @ 1:00pm:  This educational learning session is brought to you in collaboration with the Town of Ridgefield Commission on Aging as part of its 2023 Speaker Series.

Everyone needs an estate plan. It protects you and your assets during your life and after. Will you be prepared when life takes a turn? Who will pay your bills if you can’t? How will your estate be divided amongst your heirs? Connecticut estate planning, probate and elder law expert, Attorney Lynda Lee Arnold, will explain estate planning basics and the documents every adult should have. You will learn answers to questions like:

· What is the difference between a will and a trust? Why won’t a will be sufficient by itself?

· Do you need a power of attorney and what should it say?

· What are health care directives?

You will walk away knowing what you need to do to build an estate plan that will protect you and your assets. If you already have an estate plan in place, you will learn about important updates that you may be advantaged to make.
