Whether you are 35 or 75, it’s vitally important to have an estate plan in place. As everyone knows, life can be unpredictable. If you want to have control over how your assets are disbursed should something happen to you, as opposed to the government making those decisions, then you need to create a plan. Planning ahead will not only give you peace of mind, but your family as well.
Join the Office of Gift Planning at the University of Maryland to learn about the fundamentals of estate planning with estate planning attorney Rajiv Goel ‘94. Rajiv will discuss the functions of wills and powers of attorneys, how titling assets differently can impact the distribution of your estate, the estate settlement process, and options for appointing an executor.
