How many times have I heard the following: “I only have ‘a few thousand dollars.’ Why should I pay a lawyer to help me prepare an estate plan? I’ll just add my “son/daughter/grandchild to my accounts.” Let’s see how that works out.
This month we honor two groups of “special” Americans. National Disability Employment Awareness Month celebrates the many accomplishments of employees with disabilities. This effort to educate the American public about issues related to disability and employment began in 1945 when Congress enacted a law declaring the first week in October as National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week. In 1988, Congress expanded the week to a month and changed the name to National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
