Legacy Planning Services

End-of-life issues can be difficult to think about and discuss with loved ones. Putting wishes in writing will make them easier to share. Planning helps prepare for the orderly disposition of gifts to heirs or charities and can also help address unexpected issues such as critical illness. The service provides information and resources to help active and retired employees and their families deal with the loss of a loved one or plan for their own passing.
