Planning for the Unknown

Planning for the Unknown
Protect your financial well-being in the face of unplanned events.
Presented by James P. Terwilliger, PhD, CFP®
Tuesday, January 15th | 11:00am-1:00pm

How does one plan for unexpected events? This would be more easily managed if we could predict the future. We have developed a model to distinguish true emergencies from other non-recurring, but planned, events. Understanding the differences and how to deal with them will give you the tools you need to better handle both. Come and learn how you can better prepare yourself to weather the financial storms of the unknown.

Once I'm Gone

Once I’m Gone
How to secure a future for your spouse, child, or partner.
Presented by Suzanne Ellin, JD, CGMA, CTFA, CFP®
Wednesday, January 30th | 11:00am-1:00pm

It’s common for families to have one person who handles the finances, and problems arise quickly when that person can no longer handle these affairs. As Trustees, we are often called upon to help a family member who is left behind or who can’t perform the tasks their loved one needs. With proper planning, we can minimize the financial impacts and guide clients through a process that ensures they and their loved ones continue to be taken care of in their time of need.

Discover why it’s important to stay on course during foul market weather.
