Life/Estate Planning

Life Planning, also called Estate Planning, is something we all need, regardless of how much we earn or where we are in life!

We All Need a Plan!

Whether you're a newlywed, young family, single, divorced, empty-nesters or retired: Do you have your critical decisions made and clearly spelled out? It's so important not to leave them to chance.

Local Christian attorney, Doug Brackmann, will hold a free, informational workshop Wednesday, Nov. 28, 6:30-8pm at 84th St. He'll have information on wills, estates, trusts, power of attorney, health care advocates, and Medicaid eligibility to cover nursing home costs. Sign up deadline is Thursday, November 22.

Estate Planning November 2018

What is a Trust and do I really need one?

In simplest terms, a Trust is a legal agreement in which your property or money is held or managed by someone else or by an organization (such as a bank) for a set period of time.

If you have minimal assets and/or a simple estate, and do not believe a trust is necessary (contact the church office if you have questions about trusts), please refer to the “Planning for your Peace of Mind” booklet. This booklet, provided by the State Bar of Michigan, is designed to assist you in preplanning by providing frequently asked questions, general information and forms on Michigan's Statutory Will, Patient Advocate law and organ donation.
