So now you've reached the "Golden Years". Will your savings last? Thinking about leaving a legacy for your children?
It's In Your Hands
"Everyone has legal questions about the laws that affect our lives. These may change over time as we grow up, move into the workforce, buy our first home, start a family, care for aging parents, plan for retirement and become seniors ourselves.
This booklet [It's In Your Hands] was produced as part of the Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia Seniors Legal Planning Project. The objectives of the project are to:
- Increase seniors' knowledge and understanding about arranging their legal affairs
- Increase the knowledge and understanding of family members, friends, caregivers, and practitioners/service providers working with seniors and their families, about both the legal-financial issues pertinent to seniors and the available resources and supports." It's In Your Hands
Leaving a legacy
A legacy is bigger than a bank balance, or a property...even the contents of a jewelry box...A legacy is the impact a person leaves on the world around them.
