Clallam County Parent to Parent is hosting a free virtual “Financial Futures, Planning Options” seminar at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25, via Zoom.
Event organizers say that financial planning has never been easy for families and individuals with special needs — often aggravated by concerns surrounding current income, access to funds, and the fear of losing state and federal benefits.
Through this seminar, attendees can learn that while they don’t need a lot of money to plan for the future, it is important to make a plan. A financial plan can help the entire family support and provide for a loved one with special needs, and safeguard government benefits.
Gary Knopp, financial advisor with Prudential Advisors, will be presenting “Meeting the Financial Challenge: Helping you ensure quality of life for loved ones with special needs.” He will discuss the importance of having a will, what options you have to protect and support your loved one through life insurance, and more.
J. Graham Ralston, an attorney with Ralston Law, will present “Estate Planning with a Purpose: Your estate plan options and providing for those with special needs.” He will discuss the importance of planning; identifying and organizing assets; developing and funding a special needs trust, and more.
Both Knopp and Ralston will answer questions and provide contact information.
