Estate planning seminar focuses on beneficiaries and process

Estate planning involves more than money. Proper estate planning takes a close look at all factors related to an individuals’ life, including beneficiaries.

A free educational seminar entitled Beneficiaries Process and Review: Keeping it Up-To-Date and In the Family will help equip attendees with essential information needed to understand the beneficiary process.

The public is invited to attend the free seminar on Tuesday, October 8 at 6 p.m. at Grand Arbor, 4403 Pioneer Road Southeast, Alexandria. Local estate planning attorney Lisa Bowen will explore the topic in depth.

This is the second seminar in an ongoing series hosted by Thrivent Financial and Knute Nelson.

Upcoming seminar topics include:

Thursday, November 14 – The Whys of Wills, Developing Your Legacy and Charitable Giving.

Tuesday, December 3 – Long Term Care and Estate Planning: The Essentials.

Tuesday, January 14, 2014 – Market Updates.

There is no cost to attend, but RSVPs are appreciated due to limited space. Desserts and refreshments will be provided.

Bowen is an active member of the Elder Law Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association and serves on the Probate and Trust Law Section Council. Bowen obtained her law degree from Hamline University School of Law.
