Thinking and talking about your final wishes can be tough. But doing the work of deciding, discussing, documenting and sharing those wishes with your loved ones has proven to provide peace of mind for everyone. Getting the practical side of your affairs in order will give reassurance that “everything is taken care of” to those you care most about and unburden them from having to make difficult yet necessary decisions as they grieve and mourn. Attend this AARP webinar June 27th, 11:30 am — 12:30 pm, to learn how to:
- Plan and document your wishes in case of medical or other emergencies
- Track important medical and insurance information
- Store key information on property, vehicles and non-financial assets
- Document what you have and what you owe
- Make the “unseen” visible by creating a digital estate plan
- Express your final wishes for how you’d like to be remembered
- Provide grief support to your loved ones before and after your death
- Store and digitally access all your final wishes documents
