About the Webinar

How do you arrange your estate to support and protect your family member with a disability? Becoming well-informed about wills, trusts and estate planning is necessary to secure the financial future of your loved one with a disability and give you peace of mind. British Columbians can now access Plan Institute’s highly successful Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning Workshop online. In this webinar, estate-planning attorney Brendan Pooran explains how to arrange your estate, prepare a will, and the various ins and outs of setting up a trust specifically for your relative or loved-one with a disability.

This webinar will provide participants with an introduction to the following topics:

  • Why and how to write and update a will when there is a family member with a disability
  • Ways in which to ensure your loved one with a disability is protected when family passes away
  • The types of trusts available for people with disabilities, including the differences between discretionary and Non-discretionary, Testamentary and Inter-vivos
  • The various tax rates differences between Trusts, including recent federal changes, and their implications
