MU Extension offers estate planning workshops in multiple counties

Friday, July 14, 2017

The University of Missouri Extension is offering a program that helps to understand the need for an estate plan and the fundamentals of creating one.

“Every estate is planned — either by an individual or the government, “says Trish Savage, MU Extension family financial education specialist. “Just starting the process is a big step for many. This program explains the basics of estate planning which can lead to getting started, providing solutions and even realizing potential problems.”

Workshops are during the last week of July in Carrollton, Marshall, Keytesville, Richmond and the first week of August in Lexington. Activities during the workshop encourage participants to start their plan and identify personal choices as the presentation moves through the materials. Participants will learn about transferring titled and non-titled property, non-probate transfer tools, wills, powers of attorney, health care directives, and strategies for reducing family conflict. Pre-registration is required. To register and for more information, call your local MU Extension Center.

The University of Missouri Extension is an equal opportunity/ADA institution; our programs are open to all. If you require special accommodations, please let us know in advance and we will make arrangements.
