ABOUT THE PROGRAM: Planning for Clients Living with Chronic Illness

​More than 130 million American’s are living with chronic illness. Every practice has many clients facing these challenges but often practitioners are not informed of the issues.  Advising these clients requires an understanding of how planning for each client’s particular illness, and that client’s experience of their illness is critical. No aspect of planning is not affected: financial, retirement, estate, insurance and tax planning. How should planning be modified? What ancillary steps might be taken? How might drafting be handled differently? Should asset allocations be changed?

At the end of this presentation, audience members will be able to:

  • Learn how to modify existing planning processes and techniques to better help clients living with chronic illness.
  • Learn how coloration can enhance service to those with chronic illness.
