Estate Planning Workshop
Estate planning is a critical process to protect your assets and your loved ones during your life and after your death. An artist's creative property is an asset that, like all assets, must be disposed of upon death. Estate planning streamlines procedures and lowers expenses related to death and incapacity. It is one of the best ways to help your survivors with the difficult transition after your death. This workshop will cover essential concepts and documents everyone should consider as part of an estate plan, including the role of a will (and sometimes a living trust), beneficiary designations for assets that don't pass under your will (such as life insurance and retirement plan accounts), powers of attorney for property and personal decisions, and a living will or healthcare directives, with emphasis on considerations specific to artists' intellectual property, primarily copyrights.
