November 2019 News
Welcome to Medicare's Open Enrollment period! This annual period will continue until December 7th. This year, there two primary changes that have the potential to cause some confusion. First, there are more Medicare Advantage plans being offered as a substitute for Original Medicare. Additionally, the "Medicare Plan Finder," which is Medicare's online way for people to compare Medicare plan options, has undergone some renovations which has created some confusion for individuals who are trying to enroll. For more information about Medicare Advantage offerings, click here . For more information about the Medicare Plan Finder changes, click here .

Because many of our clients ask general questions about estate planning subjects, and because these topics can be overwhelming and confusing, we are offering free information seminars to existing clients and the general public. We will cover a variety of topics, including estate planning, probate and trust administration, Life Care Planning, special needs trusts, and guardianships/conservatorships. 

There is no cost or other obligation for attending, but we do ask that you call in advance for a reservation so that sufficient seating will be available. Please call 757-969-1900 to register.
