Heard Through the Grapevine: Five Planning Myths Debunked

Raise your hand if you’ve heard that TennCare will take your home if you apply for benefits. Or how about this one: put your children’s names on your bank accounts so they can take care of all your financial needs. Here’s our all-time favorite: “I’m too young to think about estate planning.” Think again!

Before you dismiss the need for planning or make assumptions about TennCare or VA benefits, check out this presentation. You might be surprised by how much misinformation is out there and how much money and stress the right advice can save you in the long run.

This lunchtime program will take place on Thursday, August 29th, 11:30 a.m. at the Morris-Baker Hospitality Center (2001 Oakland Avenue). Bailey M. Schiermeyer, JD, Elder Law Attorney is our presenter.

We will serve lunch at 11:30 a.m., and the presentation will follow.

If you would like to attend, please let us know ahead of time. RSVP to Mike: (423) 262-5244
