Estate Planning with Jodie Beatty

Have You Created an Estate Plan for Your Family?
An estate plan is a map of how you want your personal and financial affairs to be handled in the future. An effective estate plan can help ensure that your family’s financial needs will be taken care of, and that your personal wishes will be carried out in the manner you intended. It’s a critical part of your overall financial plan. Hosted by Jodie Beatty, a local Financial Advisor with Waddell & Reed.
