New Webinar: Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning for Your Loved One with a Disability
by Plan Institute
How do you arrange your estate to support and protect your family member with a disability? This is a common question that those who have a loved-one with a disability face.
Becoming well-informed about wills, trusts and estate planning is necessary to secure the financial future of your loved one with a disability and give you peace of mind.
In response to this, we are now offering our successful Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning Workshop online to residents of British Columbia. In doing so, we’re hoping to reach individuals from all over British Columbia who may benefit from this information.
