Date: Wednesday, May 8, 2019
Time: 2:00pm EST
Speaker: Leigh Hilton
Topic: Who Gets Your Stuff When You Die?

Let's face it, death is not a subject that most people are comfortable discussing. Due to this, the important conversations that should be had with loved ones to help make this difficult time less stressful often don't happen, potentially leading to increased conflict and tension between family members and those closest to the deceased. This insightful webinar will unveil the 14 secrets that will help protect everyone you love and everything you own! It also offers guidelines for the questions you want to have covered with an aging loved one.

This informative webinar highlights tough decisions including how to choose who will get your stuff and ways to help them keep it; what to do when a beneficiary is disabled; what to do if you or your spouse are diagnosed with Alzheimers or dementia; and who will make healthcare decisions for you if you can't. It will also arm attendees with knowledge on how privacy laws may affect your plan, how to qualify in case you or a family member needs Medicaid or Veterans Benefits later, how to make sure your beneficiaries will not lose their legacy to divorce, creditors or lawsuits, and much more!

Speaker: Betty Doll
Topic: Yes, Long-Term Care Insurance is Important... but WHY?

When presenting long-term care insurance to a prospect, we typically focus the conversation on "getting you good care", "protecting your assets", "giving you choices", or "avoiding going on Medicaid". Or we try to convince them of the odds of needing care. There is a better way and it is as relevant to those with significant assets as it is to the middle class. This presentation will focus on providing tips and techniques for using the same language to present long-term care insurance as is used in the life insurance discussion. It is not about the policyholder. Rather, it is about protecting the lifestyle of the people they love. Join us to see how changing your approach can change your results!

Speaker: Maura Cunningham
Topic: Top Seven Secrets in the U.S. Financial Landscape

Maura Cunningham, founder and Executive Director of Rock The Street, Wall Street, joins us for an informative webinar that outlines the top seven secrets that afflict the financial lives of U.S. citizens. Highlights include the fact that we lose girls in math at age nine in the US, the number one reason why girls don’t choose STEMP professions (Finance is the M in STEM), and why women need to learn “fake it til you make it”, just like the guys. She'll also discuss the abhorrent state of financial literacy in the U.S., the “fake” state legislation to remedy this, how the financial services industry doesn’t know how to recruit women and why diversity and inclusion budgets are offensive.

Topic: The Value of Professional Designations

When pursuing a professional designation, it is important to know what you are looking for and why you are looking for it. Most financial advisors pursue a credential to advance their career, distinguish themselves within the industry, expand their business, or their clients are looking for it.

With so many financial credentials out there, how do you know which one is best for you? Is it from an accredited institution and will it truly add value to your business? It is paramount that your time, effort, and money are well spent to further your career. The College for Financial Planning works hard to ensure our students find the right designation for their personal and professional goals all while providing an exceptional learning experience. The College offers programs for all levels from those new to the industry to someone who is growing their business or wanting to advance their education to graduate studies. Join me to learn more about which designation may be right for you.
