Estate Planning Basics Workshops

by | Mar 8, 2010 | Wills and Trusts

Do you know you need a will but don’t know where to start?

Is the thought of estate planning so overwhelming you give up before you begin?

Do you know how old your will is?

Are your kids as good with money as you are?

Do you keep putting off for someday what you really should take care of today?

The best estate planning comes from being educated about your options. Most Edwards Group clients are surprised at how easy we make the estate planning process. However, we know sometimes it’s hard to take the first step. That’s why, at Edwards Group, we do all we can to make the process painless. One of the easiest first steps you can take towards protecting your loved one is to attend one of our many FREE workshops. Just find a topic, date and time that work for you, then give us a call at 217-726-9200 or email our Client Coordinator at to RSVP.
