National Estate Planning Week

October 20 - 26th is National Estate Planning Week. All too often I hear people say, "I'm not a Kennedy, I do not need an estate plan!" Nothing could be farther from the truth.

To me estate planning is 3 things: planning for illness, death and taxes. ...none of which anyone can avoid. Learn more about National Estate Planning Week at
