Estate and Retirement Planning for Women Farmers and their Families
March 18 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Estate and retirement planning can be complex topics as they have several long-term and short-term considerations. Yet the topic is essential for farmers and impacts not only their retirement, but also passing the farm to successors.
This program is sponsored by a Northeast Risk Management Grant and is an offshoot of the nationally renown Annie’s Project. To break things down into digestible pieces, we are offering two web-based sessions from 6-7:30 pm on March 14 and 16. We will then add additional content and focus on synthesizing this information into an estate action plan at an in-person session in Keene, NH on March 18. Participants will leave with an estate action plan that they can begin to methodically move forward with.
