Event description

Description

In sponsorship with Ballard Spahr LLP & BNY Mellon, we are proud to bring the Wills for Heroes program to you. Wills for Heroes is a free and easy service that provides Wills, Living Wills, Health Care and Financial Powers of Attorney to active and retired first responders and their spouses/partners.

If you die without a Will, intestate laws will determine who will receive your property. Undoubtedly, your loved ones’ grief will be overwhelming; a clear expression of your intent, desires, and wishes may help ease some of this inevitable burden. While nobody likes to think about an untimely death, it is best that you express your wishes through a written document. For your family’s peace of mind, please consider this invaluable opportunity, offered completely free to you and your spouse/partner.

On Thursday, January 25, 2018, volunteer lawyers will be conducting a Wills for Heroes clinic for all active and retired New York Resident First Responders and their spouses/partners (please note that we are only able to provide these services to those who are legal residents of the state of New York. The January 25th event will be held at the SDNY Federal Courthouse, located at 500 Pearl Street, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10007 beginning at 12:00 pm. Appointments for each person last approximately 1 hour and at the conclusion of it you will have notarized legal documents – a Will, Personal Financial Power of Attorney, Durable General Power of Attorney and Healthcare Directive (or any combination thereof). Please schedule your appointment early as this event is sure to fill up fast.

Spouses/partners must register separately. Once your appointment has been scheduled, you will receive an email confirmation from the coordinator along with a questionnaire which must be completed in advance. It is very important that you take the time to consider the questions raised in the questionnaire prior to your appointment. If you have questions in advance of your appointment please contact the organizer of the event through the Eventbrite website above or Lindsey Beideman at beidemanl@ballardspahr.com. For more information on the program visit the Wills for Heroes Foundation at www.willsforheroes.org.

** If your estate exceeds approximately $750,000, this service is unavailable to you due to the complexity of your estate and the limited time to complete the legal documents. For determining if your estate is over $750,000, include your cash, personal property, stock and bonds, real estate equity, savings, cash value of a whole/universal life insurance policy only (not the amount of the insurance policy).


PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE AVAILABLE ON THE WILLS DAY FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT - INDIVIDUALS ARE VOLUNTEERING THEIR TIME FOR THIS PROGRAM - NO-SHOWS ARE STRONGLY DISCOURAGED!
