Class on avoiding probate at Rehoboth Public Library May 20

May 16, 2013

A free class is being offered to the public from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Monday, May 20, at the Rehoboth Beach Public Library, 226 Rehoboth Ave, Rehoboth Beach. The library has several free parking places for patrons in the alley south of Rehoboth Avenue, which is accessed from Second Street.

The class covers avoiding probate, how to make the transition of property occur seamlessly at the time of death, without opening an estate. The sponsor, Delaware Money School, provides two experienced and qualified instructors, Certified Financial Planner Samuel F. Slabaugh and George B. Smith, Esq., who break down a complex subject to understandable layman’s terms.

This class focuses only on steps the lay person can take so assets transfer at death to the intended beneficiaries by operation of law, immediately and automatically.  This class teaches how to prepare an estate in such a manner that the entire probate process can be avoided and the will never comes into play.

The Delaware Money School is the signature program of the nonprofit Delaware Financial Literacy Institute. It offers more than 600 free, no-hassle personal finance classes a year, throughout the state, taught by volunteers from the nonprofit and corporate sectors.
