Register through WITCC Lifelong Learning Program for this ZOOM presentation

Another presentation in our Aging Well Series with WITCC Lifelong Learning Program. Register by calling WITCC at 712.274.4064

We plan for vacations, for outings, and for all those other important events throughout our lives. Megan King, with Edward D. Jones, will present on the importance of estate plans. Estate plans can give direction when choosing where your resources will go, whether to your family mem-bers and/or a favorite charity. She tells us that they are not only valuable for you to have in place, but also for your heirs, helping them avoid many of the common (and costly) pitfalls when a plan is not in place. And certainly, she’ll have time to answer your many questions! Join us for another great presentation from the Connections Area Agency on Aging.
