3/29 A Will is Not Enough - Estate Planning workshop at Cedar Mill Community Library

Join attorney Richard Schneider, on Tuesday, March 29, 6:30 pm, at Cedar Mill Library, for this free estate planning workshop.

Everyone has an “estate,” no matter what you’ve acquired in life. Yet 75% of the public is caught unprepared, unaware that they even have an estate. Richard Schneider is the co-author of A Will is Not Enough in Oregon.

Learn about the legal documents that everyone needs. Get an overview of vocabulary pertinent to determining assets and will preparation. Discover the differences between wills and living trusts and ascertain which one is right for you and your family. Learn about necessary health care documents, powers of attorney, guardianship and retirement issues. You will also have the opportunity to have your questions answered.
