The education slot

A fantastic Ed slot today by John Mckenzie all about the 2 minute testimonial structure.

Start with a situation, then talk about the incident/problem, turning point (when you or someone else gets involved), Solution found, results that equals value

 

10 minute speaker: Alan Salter from AMS Wills and Trusts

Alan spoke about the importance of getting the right things in place, before you die!

Imagine….What would happen if you require care in later life

You have an estate is worth £250000. Mortgage free, with £35k of savings. Both partners have a basic wills leaving everything to surviving spouse on death.

They are involved in a car accident. Unfortunately, one of them dies and the other is paralysed, and will need to go into a care home.

10 years later, the surviving partner dies. Care costs have eaten into their estate and after funeral costs, each of their 2 children received £5k.

If they had taken to Alan, he would have advised them about Will Trusts and how this could have protected their estate, allowing their children to receive more.
