It’s the right time to plan for your future

  • Legal concerns: We encourage you to make an appointment with your family lawyer. If you do not have a lawyer, there are a number of options available in the community. They will guide you through the decision-making process and ensure you have the right documents in place to protect you and your family members.
  • Financial planning: We also encourage you to make an appointment with your financial advisor(s) to review your options. They will walk you through some of the key questions to consider and help you put plans in place to ensure financial security.
