Talking to Baby Boomer Parents

About Estate Planning and Sensitive Later Life Issues


Thomas J. Pauloski Lauren Young Michael P. Ryan

Are you familiar with the terms: Last Will & Testament, CodicilSpecial Needs Trust, Living Will, Health Care Proxy, Medicare Qualification Trust, Power of AttorneyAre your parents' affairs in order? Have you had a discussion with them about retirement, estate planning and other sensitive late life issues?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'no'... please join us for a panel discussion on initiating meaningful conversations with family members about estate planning and other sensitive late life issues. Starting now gives them, you and all other family members more time to adequately plan, prepare and prosper.


There are over 73 million Baby Boomers, who were born between 1945 and 1964. They contributed to and benefitted from the greatest period of economic growth in American history and have amassed the greatest amount of wealth of any generation before them. Between 2015 and 2025, however, they will begin to pass away and during that period, America will experience the greatest generational transfer of wealth the world has ever known. The manner in which their estates are structured will determine how cleanly or messily that transfer takes place. We recognize that talking about money with your parents can feel awkward. Throughout the evening, we will discuss the hard realities of managing estates and provide strategies for overcoming the emotional barriers that accompany a discussion on sensitive late life issues.

Light hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be served. This event is open to all alumni of Northwestern University. Seating is limited. Please register soon. If you should have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact Avrumie Herssein KSM'11.
