Wills: The Importance of Having a Plan Seminar

A 2016 Gallop poll indicated that 55% of Americans don’t have a will. A will should be a fundamental part of being an adult – passing away without one puts unnecessary strain on your loved ones. Creating a will is an essential first step in estate planning. Take that first step at Texell’s seminar – Wills: The Importance of Having a Plan.


After you attend this seminar, you will:

  • Understand important factors when planning for your estate
  • Have a completed Power of Attorney and healthcare directive
  • Have the resources and knowledge to create your own will
  • Be presented with a free planner to gather the information necessary to create a will
