Upcoming TSA workshops

FINANCIAL/ESTATE PLANNING WORKSHOP, Union South – check “Today in the Union”
Thursday, October 1, 2015, 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.

Professor Howard Erlanger, UW-Madison Law School, provides an overview of financial/estate planning. This informative workshop is intended for employees of all ages – including younger employees who have children. It will address questions you may or may not have thought to ask yourself, including:

  • What do I own?
  • What is the effect of living in a “community property” state, like Wisconsin?
  • Is it true that some – maybe much — of my property is not governed by my will?
  • Why do I need to “coordinate” my estate plan?
  • What is a trust and why should I use a trust for my children under 25?
  • What about taxes?

The session is scheduled for one hour, but Professor Erlanger will remain at the site for an extended period after the presentation to answer questions.

To register, email Professor Erlanger has prepared a 25 page summary of his talk.  Registered participants will receive a digital copy prior to the session.
