The presentation:
As American’s redefine their concept of family, our laws – developed and refined from old English common law – lag far behind. We will look at alternatives for passing legacy and wealth to partners, children, and “family” that remain ill defined in the law. We will investigate protections and methods of applying strategies that look through current legal definitions and safeguards to provide the same or similar estate planning, health and retirement benefits which result in protecting the ones we love – our families.

Hosted by:
The U-Med collaborative includes Alaska Public Telecommunications, Inc., Providence Alaska Foundation, University of Alaska Anchorage, and the Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation. We aspire to promote financial well-being and philanthropy to better our community and our state.
