COOKEVILLE –WCTE is hosting a free estate planning and will preparation class on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 11 a.m. at the Millard Oakley Public Library at 170 E. Main St. in Livingston. Guest speaker Joy Buck Gothard, attorney at law, will be speaking about understanding the impact of choosing a good executor or trustee, working effectively with an attorney, paying attention to beneficiary designations and other important issues around estate planning.
Estate planning is one of the most overlooked areas of personal financial management. It has been estimated that more than 120 million Americans do not have proper estate plans to protect themselves or their families in the event of sickness, accidents, or untimely death. This circumstance can cause many family’s unnecessary expenses and financial hardship. Proper planning can help avoid these unintended consequences.
