As part of its series on financial planning, Yvonne Reitemeyer of Frailey Insurance and Financial Services is offering a free seminar on the basics of estate planning at Grace Park in Stroudsburg, PA on September 27 at 5:30 pm. Attorney Tim Fisher of Fisher & Fisher Law Offices will address the participants on the subject of wills, taxes, trusts, power of attorney and other issues related to proper estate planning.
Studies show that over 60% of American adults have no will or other estate plan in place. The wealthy are no more likely to have a will than middle class Americans. The absence of an estate plan can leave behind a serious but unnecessary financial and legal burden on loved ones. Proper planning can minimize the taxes and other financial consequences for families or business partners and ensure that assets are distributed according to the wishes of the decedant.
Estate planning can also help avoid potential chaos and hard feelings between family members by pre-planning how assets are to be managed and how personal property will be divided. In Pennsylvania, when one dies without a will, called “intestate”, the courts determine how assets are to be distributed.
Attorney Tim Fisher, the featured speaker at the seminar, has over 20 years experience providing legal services and guidance on estate planning to residents of the Greater Pocono Mountain region in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The seminar is being sponsored by Frailey Insurance and Financial Services as part of a series of workshops on insurance and financial planning. It will be hosted by Yvonne Reitemeyer, Financial Advisor with Frailey.
Grace Park is located at 1170 West Main Street in Stroudsburg, PA. A light complimentary supper will be served at 5:30, followed at 6:00 by the seminar. The seminar is free and open to the public but seating is limited. For reservations, call Yvonne Reitemeyer at (570) 421-7447 ext. 233.
