What’s the Plan? Estate planning considerations for parents and carers

Stacey Bell will discuss the basic pillars of estate planning, what to consider when building your legacy and how to tailor the control mechanisms during incapacity or after death to suit your family’s needs.

From enduring powers of attorney, to wills and trusts, Stacey will guide you through (almost) everything you need to know to build a legacy that will protect your family today, next week, and in 20 years’ time.

How to set your Executor up for success

Having legally valid documents is only the first step in the estate planning process. Next is figuring out how it’s all going to work in the real world for your loved ones.

Following from her earlier session, Stacey Bell will discuss some case studies to illustrate how a successful estate plan can work in practice. She’ll also explain how you can prepare in advance to make a difficult time a little bit easier for your loved ones.
