When it comes to estate planning, it can be very involved and even more so for families of children and adults with disabilities.
The RECing Crew will have a workshop Monday to help address the topic, said Pam Stickler, the executive director.
Planning for Tomorrow: Understanding Special Needs Trusts, Wills, Guardianship and Power of Attorney will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Grace United Methodist Church’s youth fellowship hall.
“There are some different options about how to go about different things,” Stickler said. “I think it is very important that these things are in place.”
Guest speaker Arthur “Buzz” Rich, an attorney and certified financial planner, will discuss various aspects related to estate planning and answer questions families may have, said Stickler.
“He’s going to give them all the tools they are going to need to go to whoever they need to go to so they can get the process going,” she said.
For those who have plans, it is an opportunity to review those plans and see if anything needs to be changed, she added.
“This is a good time to ask questions,” she said. “You might hear something another family is doing that will work for you. It’s also a good time for families to share what they’re doing or where they’ve had problems.”
The idea came from discussions families of RECing Crew members would have during the group’s programs.
“There’s always a lot of questions brought up to us about these particular topics,” she said.
The workshop is open to any family with a child or adult with disabilities and not just to RECing Crew members.
