Are Your Ducks in a Row? – National Estate Planning Awareness Week

It's estimated that more than 120 million Americans don’t have proper estate plans to protect themselves or their families if they were to become sick, have an accident or suffer an untimely death.

Oct. 19 – 25 is National Estate Planning Awareness Week, and taking the time now to make decisions about financial assets and personal goals can help you be sure that your future wishes for your family and the charities you care about are fulfilled.

The Arkansas PBS Foundation can help you take that first important step! Request our FREE personal estate planning booklet today.

This free booklet gives you a place to organize all your most important information, such as:

  • List of family contacts and dates of birth.
  • Medical contacts and health insurance information.
  • Banking accounts and retirement assets information.
  • Life insurance information.
  • Charitable intentions.
  • You may be surprised after working through the booklet at the areas you want to provide direction on rather than leave to chance! And you should never assume that your family “knows” what your wishes are.

    To receive this booklet, call Arkansas PBS Foundation’s Karen Cooper at 800-662-2386, or click here to make the request online. Getting your ducks in a row is a great feeling!
