Visit the seminar page for a list of upcoming seminars.

In October, several virtual seminars were held on a variety of aging-related topics. Attendees logged on to Zoom from the comfort and safety of home to learn essential estate planning tips for their second half of life. Among the topics discussed were tricks to beat death & taxes, strategies for managing a healthcare crisis, and community resources available to aid in the care of a loved one who has been diagnosed with Dementia.

Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak collaborated with Nittany Brokerage to host multiple “happy hour” virtual meetings during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. These informal events featured speakers Jenna L. Franks, Esq., and Kristin Daugherty, Long-Term Care Planner, Certified Medicaid Planner™, and allowed individuals to ask their estate and long-term care planning questions from the safety of home while sipping on their favorite glass of wine or other beverage.

What if an unexpected health crisis suddenly hits you or a family member, resulting in a need for long-term care? Do you know your options? How will you pay for it? In the Second Half of Life Podcast episode 45, our two all-star long-term care planners, Kristin Daugherty and Tammy Zilske, discuss the different levels of long-term care and what each entails, as well as how each is or can be generally paid for - though each individual situation certainly varies - and which ones are eligible to be paid for by Medicaid benefits (not all of them are). Kristin and Tammy are two of only about a handful of Certified Medicaid Planners in all of Pennsylvania, and they work with clients each day on qualifying for Medicaid in these types of situations. If you or a family member anticipate requiring long-term care at some point in the future, or even if you don't but want to be aware of your options should something unexpected happen down the road, this episode explains everything you'll need to know.

Each quarter, members of the Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak team routinely particpate in community events. Here's a summary of the various activities that SGY representatives took part in during the fourth quarter of 2020 (October-December).

Attorney Jenna Franks presented at the Pennsylvania State Education Association’s Central Region Pre-Retirement Seminar, held virtually on select Saturdays in October. Jenna discussed the importance of having estate planning documents in place and how you can protect your assets with different types of trusts. Attendees gained a better understanding of all the estate planning documents needed for a successful second half of life.

Kyle Hetner, Seminar & Communications Manager, and Beth Herzog, Legal Assistant, carved a jack-o’-lantern for the first annual pumpkin carving & decorating contest hosted by Comfort Keepers of Central PA. It was quite fitting for 2020 that the final pumpkin design was complete wearing a COVID mask! Voting occurred online via Facebook.
