Preparing for unexpected events is a key to your financial wellness. Join VBSR and Rhonda Lathrop of Merrill Lynch for a webinar that will help prepare you and your finances for all of the curveballs life throws at us. Whether it be 911, the credit crisis, or COVID-19 – there will be another curveball throughout your lifetime, and the unexpected is not knowing what or when it will be.

We’ll talk about the importance of setting up an emergency fund, review different types of insurance, and discuss how developing an estate plan can help make sure your family knows your wishes – and can act on them – in the event of your death. We’ll also offer some suggestions on things to consider about caregiving and the loss of a spouse or family member too. We’ll also provide tools to help you develop your financial plan for the unexpected. NOTE: This webinar will focus on personal financial planning, vs. financial planning for a business.
