Two Estate Planning Workshops in one!
Jul 31 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Two free workshops in one:
Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate and Five Critical Estate Planning Documents

There are many approaches when dividing emotionally valued assets after a loved one dies. Sometimes the process can cause a huge rift between family members at just the time they need eachWho Gets Grandma's Yellow Pie Plate? other the most! Estate planning today is more complicated than it has ever been. Often, mistakes in a plan are not discovered until someone has passed on.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben County is offering a workshop to help guide your family in planning ahead, on both these topics! Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate? and Five Critical Estate Planning Documents, will be held on Thursday, July 31 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the Southeast Steuben County Library, 300 Nasser Civic Center, Corning.

  • Who Gets Grandma’ Yellow Pie Plate explores the sensitivity of how to pass on personal possessions with Cooperative Extension’s Financial Management Educator Nancy Reigelsperger. Whether planning ahead or making decisions when a loved one dies, this class will help you and your family recognize the sensitivity of the issue, determine what you want to accomplish, decide what’s fair for your family, understand how belongings have different meanings to different individuals, consider distribution options and consequences, and help you to agree to manage conflicts if they arise.

    Some of the topics Reigelsperger will cover include key factors for successful non titled property transfer, determining what “fair” means, and identifying special objects and sharing stories about their history.

  • Patrick Roth, Elder Law Attorney, CPA from Corning, will lead the Five Critical Estate Planning Document workshop. Is your estate plan a comprehensive estate plan which includes all of the five critical documents? Do you know what could happen if you don’t have one or more of these documents in place? He will discuss such topics as:

o    What can happen if you never get around to completing your plan?

o    What do each of these documents do and what happens if you don’t have them.

o    Learn how to prevent disaster from striking you and your loved ones.

Seating is limited, so register a space in this workshop by contacting 607-664-2300.
