Estate planning and end-of-life documents explained at free presentation

Estate planningAre trusts just for families with a lot of wealth? What is the difference between a revocable trust and a living trust? How can charitable giving also benefit me financially? These and other financial planning questions will be answered at a free presentation March 20 at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor.

Arkansas City attorney Orvel Mason will discuss wills, revocable trusts vs. living trusts and other types of plans that can be helpful for older adults and their families. He will also explain the need for a durable power of attorney as well as a medical power of attorney. Ed Shafer, senior vice president for development for Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, will explain financial products such as charitable gift annuities, which benefit the giver as well as the receiver.

“Life Changes that Affect My Estate” will begin at 1:30 p.m. March 20 at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor, 1711 N. Fourth. The presentation is free, and refreshments will be served. The talk is part of Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor’s Just Ask series, a free, ongoing lifelong learning program featuring information from local, regional and national experts on topics of interest to older adults and their families.
