Fundamentals of Estate Planning provides an overview of the options in arranging your affairs: what happens under intestate succession if you die without a plan; the uses of either a Will or Revocable Living Trust; an overview of probate administration; the impact of estate taxes; non-testamentary transfer options, such as holding property in a joint tenancy; powers of attorney for financial and healthcare decision-making; Living Wills and Do Not Resuscitate Directives; and a very general overview of how limitations on Medicaid eligibility might affect your assets. The presentation is relevant to adults of all ages. It is free and open to the public, and lasts about 1½ hours with time for questions.
