The Marin County Estate Planning Council (MCEPC) is pleased to announce the launch of its new online estate planning resource directory. Estate Planning is a personalized process of creating and implementing a strategy to manage one’s financial affairs in the event of disability or death. Estate planning professionals can help consumers understand and navigate their interrelated tax, legal, financial, and risk issues.
The new directory is located at http://www.mcepc.org in the “Find A Professional” section. It lists members in the following disciplines: attorneys, accountants, investment advisers, financial planners, fiduciaries, insurance agents, charitable planning specialists, and other related professionals.
About the Marin Estate Planning Council
The MCEPC is a community-based organization of tax, legal, fiduciary, investment advisory, insurance, financial planning, and charitable giving professionals. Membership is restricted to those individuals who have several years of experience in the area of estate planning and who have been recommended for membership by their peers. Since 1967, the MCEPC has been the primary organization in Marin for professionals seeking ongoing education and collaboration with other specialists in the estate planning field.
“Estate Planning is inherently a multi-faceted and confusing area for many individuals,” said David Raub, MCEPC’s current president. “For the past decade, estate planning has grown even more complex with the continuous changes enacted by Congress. As we move past the unique provisions for 2010 and the temporary two-year law enacted in December, it is critical that individuals are prepared for what might happen in 2012 and beyond. The consumer directory on our site, http://www.mcepc.org, is a great place to look for a professional who can help.”
The MCEPC is affiliated with the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils (NAEPC, http://www.naepc.org). According to the NAEPC, “It is estimated that over 120 million Americans do not have up-to-date estate plans to protect themselves or their families in the event of sickness, accidents, or untimely death. This costs the affluent and middle classes wasted dollars and hours of emotional hardship each year that can be materially minimized with advanced planning and action.” MCEPC’s parent organization also provides a comprehensive online resource for consumers, http://www.estateplanninganswers.org/.
