Celebrate the ADA
Creating a Revocable Living Trust? Consider the Common Pot
Help Give the Gift of Reading
 
Celebrate the Americans with Disabilities Act 

July 26, 2016 marks the 26th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Celebrations of the signing of the ADA by President George H.W. Bush on July 26, 1990 are taking place across the nation.

To celebrate this 26th milestone, the ADA National Network and its ten regional ADA Centers across the United States offer an ADA Anniversary Tool Kit for use by the public and the media through the ADA Anniversary website! 

Creating a Revocable Living Trust? Consider the Common Pot

When you create a revocable living trust, there are countless factors that have to be considered with regard to how and when your assets should be distributed to your beneficiaries. This is especially true if you have young beneficiaries (such as minor children or grandchildren) or older beneficiaries who you do not want to inherit a share outright immediately upon your passing. In cases like these, you must weigh whether to hold all of the beneficiaries' inheritances in one "common pot", or whether to split them into separate shares immediately upon your passing.
