Getting Your Affairs in Order

There is no "good" or "pleasant" time to think about estate planning, but the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought the topic to the forefront for many. With current social distancing and Stay At Home Orders having a tremendous positive impact on our community our risk level may be low, but our situation clearly illustrates how quickly disease and life circumstances can evolve and change. Many people have found they have more time on their hands right now to prioritize this difficult, but important work.

We have curated here a list of resources for planning and settling your affairs to leave behind the best possible situation for your loved ones. If you have any questions about these materials or need additional assistance please do not hesitate to contact Family Resource Management Agent Renae Riedy at renaer@ksu.edu
