Program Description


Please note that this program is in-person at the Noah Webster Library. 

The past couple years have taught us that life circumstances can change in an instant. If they do, are you prepared? Consider some difficult questions….Do you want to be on life support? Who will pay your bills if you can’t? And if you pass away, how will your estate be divided amongst your heirs? In this program, you’ll learn about wills, trusts, powers of attorney (POA), and healthcare directives. You’ll walk away understanding what these documents are for, and what you need to do to create yours. Even if you have already created an estate plan, come learn about recent law updates and discover if you should have your existing documents reviewed and updated.
