Kodiak Community Foundation Presents:
Wills and Estate Planning with Steve Mahoney of the Foraker Group
When a person dies, what happens to his or her money and property? Without a will, a decedent’s money and property – or estate – are distributed to surviving heirs under the law of intestacy. If you can help it at all you don’t want to have your loved ones mired in legal problems when you pass. Making that a reality requires a little thought, a plan, and some simple actions. We will have a discussion of how Alaska law works without a will, what you can do with a Trust, the options available if you decide to prepare a will, and how to create one. As importantly, we will discuss the necessity of a Health Care Directive and, potentially, guardianship for possible disability and for children and grandchildren. Especially in this COVID and pandemic environment, a plan for disposition of your property, if the unthinkable should happen, is important for the protection of your loved ones and the ones you leave behind.
It’s never too early to start thinking about wills and estate planning, and the Kodiak Community Foundation wants to help connect you with resources to do just that. This two-part virtual training will feature a presentation on Friday, November 6, on the laws governing the disposition of property after death, either by intestate succession or by will. Community members can also schedule private one-on-one consultations with Steve Mahoney on Saturday, November 7, courtesy of the Kodiak Community Foundation.
