Estate Planning 101

  • Kohala Intergenerational Center 54-3853 Akoni Pule Highway Kapaau, HI, 96755 United States (map)

As the old expression goes, "You can't take it with you."  This is where Estate Planning comes in.  People need a will or will substitute, and maybe a revocable living trust, if they want to control who inherits their property and how and when that inheritance is received, to minimize administration costs, and to avoid unnecessary taxes.  A well-planned estate is a gift to your loved ones and provides you peace of mind. It is part of your legacy.

Everyone has a different story and should have a unique estate plan.  At this seminar you will learn:

  • The process of Estate Planning
  • What a plan looks like (the documents)
  • Scenarios where Estate Planning is useful



A comprehensive estate plan includes at least 5 of these documents.
