Caring for someone who is dependent due to a significant disability is a major responsibility. Making provisions for that person's physical, emotional, and financial well-being after the death of the caregiver can be complex and confusing. This webinar is a resource for estate planning for families with a dependent disabled family member.

ADN partnered with Everence to offer the webinar After We’re Gone: Disabilities and Estate Planning with Dennis LeFevre and Jennifer Lyle on Thursday, March 31. Additional hosts included Jeanne Davies (ADN executive director), Lyle Miller (Everence), and Mitchell Stutzman (Everence, ADN Board of Directors). Watch a recording of the webinar on Youtube.
