LEARNING OPPORTUNITY! Powers of Attorney: What are they? Why are they important?

Typically, the first thing that comes to mind on the topic of “Estate Planning” is “I need a Will.”  Powers of Attorney for Property and Health Care are extremely important to everyone. These documents designate another trusted individual to make financial/medical decisions in the event that a person is unable to make these decisions for themselves.

On Tuesday, April 26, 2016, the DeKalb County Estate Planning Council will present a Powers of Attorney program as part of Money Smart Week. This program will discuss the different types of Powers of Attorney and how they are useful in decision-making in the event of disability. This program may be very useful to families!

The program will be led by Laurie Guest, of Solutions are Brewing.  Free forms will be provided, and a panel of local attorneys will be available to answer questions at no charge. By attending, all attendees will have the opportunity to complete a Powers of Attorney document and be one step closer to having an Estate Plan.

Program is free of charge, but we do request an RSVP to Barb King, DeKalb County Community Foundation, barb@dekalbccf.org or 815-748-5383.
