Baby Boomers, Keep your Assets and Control your Finances By

Creating a Life Plan Now!

Do you toss all mailers to become a member of any senior organizations?

Don't want to have your parents attitude about aging & retirement?

Are you one who is not taking the senior discount even if you could?

Is avoiding all of this stressing you out?

Our motto is Happy, Healthy ... Dead.  Let’s avoid the ... in between!
This has nothing to do with getting older it has to do with keeping your freedom.

Why do you not have a plan in place?

Time?

Too overwhelming?

Lack of understanding what is needed?

Life’s Encore Planning knows how to get it done. Creating a Plan is easier than you think.

We don’t think you are old; you don’t think you're old, now let's slay this dragon that is stressing you out!

The reality is, no matter if we are 20 or 100, we all need a plan in place.

A Life Plan determines who has authority and responsibility to take control if you are unable.

Why do you Need a Life Plan Now?

What if you have a medical crisis and are unable to handle your financial obligations?

If you were in an accident and were unable to make healthcare decisions for yourself, who would make them?

Without a Will or Trust or both, do you understand the difficulty your survivors will face?

As last year has shown us, you never know when the "s_" will hit the fan.

Our lives were turned upside down in 2014 when my mother had a health crisis and her and my dad came to live with us while she received care in California.  What was supposed to be 2 or 3 months ended up being 13 months.  By 2016 my mom was now unable to go back to living in their condo in Washington state.  With my dad being my mom's caregiver, it was left up to me to figure out a new normal for their finances, living situation, and care for my mom.  This was an overwhelming task for me to take on as I had my own very full life.  The added responsibility took away valuable time and energy I would have given to Steve and Aiden.
