On Sept. 28th in Streamwood: 'Essentials of Estate Planning'
"Failing to plan is planning to fail."
Sometimes attributed to Benjamin Franklin, sometimes to others, the root of the pithy saying isn't nearly as important as whether you heed its wisdom.
With "Essentials of Estate Planning," Jigar Doshi of Bentron Financial Group will lead a free presentation at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28th at the Poplar Creek Public Library to fill this vital gap in individuals' knowledge of end-of-life preparation.
The library is located at 1405 S. Park Ave. and the event is open to in-district residents as well as anyone else who registers in advance. The event registration page is https://tinyurl.com/EssentialsOfEP and you can also register by contacting Paulette Harding at 331-808-3546 or email@example.com.
In the session, Doshi will cover the estate planning process from beginning to end, including the need to plan, the most common planning techniques and the documents involved. The class will also explain the difference between a will and a trust while providing attendees an understanding of probate, wills, power of attorney for healthcare, power of attorney for financial matters, living trusts, and guardianship appointments.
By the end of the session, attendees will have gained a thorough understanding of the steps they need to take to protect their spouse and heirs.
