Estate Planning for Teachers

To say the last year and a half has been a challenge would be the understatement of the century. So many have stepped up to help others and to give a sense of normalcy in such an abnormal time. One group of people especially come to mind: teachers.

Children across the Commonwealth are preparing to return to in person learning, at both the delight and fear of teachers. While teachers cannot wait to be reunited with their students there is still some hesitancy since not everyone is fully vaccinated. We know that the fear of the unknown makes teachers worried about their jobs, their students, themselves and their own families, because what will happen to them if something happens to you? We can help you to plan for the unexpected by helping you to start to create your estate planning with these foundational Documents:

  • HIPAA Authorization
  • Health Care Proxy
  • Durable Power of Attorney
  • Advanced Directive
  • Last Will and Testament

These basic, foundational documents of estate planning will give you the peace of mind that you deserve. Thank you for taking care of our children. Now let us help you to help yourself.
