We all know it’s expensive to be a family caregiver. What many of us don’t know is what we can do to keep the costs under control and identify available financial assistance. If this sounds like your situation, Allsup and the National Family Caregivers Association can help.
Register today for the financial planning webinar,“Reaching Out for Financial Help: Make the most of what you have—Get more of what you need.” This webinar is designed specifically for family caregivers and will include an opportunity to “Ask the Experts”—NFCA President and CEO Suzanne Mintz and Allsup Personal Financial Planning Director, Paul Gada.
“The sooner you get control of your finances, the better chance you have to avoid financial pitfalls,” Gada said. “This webinar will explain, in practical everyday terms, many of the legal and financial tools caregivers can use to make the most of what they have and get more of what they need.”
The webinar will be held Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011, from 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. EST. Click here to register today.
