ABILENE - Planning for the unexpected is the theme of a multi-county Texas AgriLife Extension Service estate-planning seminar set for May 18 in Abilene.
The seminar will be from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. in the Big Country Hall located next to the AgriLife Extension offices in Taylor County, 1982 Lytle Way in Abilene.
“This seminar is meant to help with personal estate planning, whether you’re starting from scratch, or just need to tweak an existing plan,” said Hoss Sasin, AgriLife Extension agent in Callahan County and a seminar planner.
Dr. Wayne A. Hayenga, an AgriLife Extension economist and Texas-licensed attorney at College Station, will be the featured speaker. He will address estate-planning laws, wills, trusts, life insurance and tax options.
“Estate planning is an extensive process that can vary from year to year as the laws change,” Sasin said. “So it’s essential to have a good plan in place to protect your estate even after you are no longer around to care for it. This seminar is designed to familiarize participants with the various options and processes they’ll need to plan an estate prior to seeking often expensive legal counsel.”
The seminar is being conducted by the AgriLife Extension offices in Taylor, Callahan, Shackelford and Jones counties.
Individual registration is $10 by May 12 and $15 thereafter. The fee includes a catered lunch.
