Topics of 18 workshops range from housing options to long-term care
Attorneys and certified financial planners will offer free advice on elder law topics such as housing options, wills and trusts, ways to pay for long-term care and how to put your estate in order at the 13th Annual Senior Law Day in Westchester. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 18 at the Westchester County Center, 198 Central Ave., White Plains.
Eighteen workshops – including two in Spanish – will be led by elder law attorneys, certified financial planners and professionals from agencies that serve older adults and their families.
A new topic this year will be the impact of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act on health insurance and Medicare. There will also be an update on recent changes to estate and income tax laws.
Once again, Senior Law Day will offer free, one-on-one, 15-minute consultations with attorneys and financial planners and – for the first time this year – with geriatric care managers.
Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino said that Senior Law Day is one of the finest programs the county offers, and he encourages all seniors and their families to attend.
