The SF Opera, Symphony, and Ballet Team Up to Offer Estate Planning Advice for LGBT Couples on June 5th

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Well, Gentle Reader, you’re richer, older, and wiser than I, so I won’t spell out who’s doing what for why.

I think this might be good for you:

 

 

Deb L. Kinney explains what you need to know post Windsor and DOMA

Estate planning for the LGBT community has always been complicated. With changes in the law since the seminal case of The United States v. Windsor, same-sex couples are afforded most federal recognition, but are there simpler plans? How does or would marriage change your estate plan or your income, estate and property tax issues? Does it matter if you move from California or have income or assets in other states?

Deb L. Kinney from Johnston Kinney and Zulaica LLP will lead a lively seminar and discussion on the various changes in the law since Windsor was decided. Specifically Deb will talk about estate planning and whether you want one trust or two, social security benefits and how to take advantage of lifetime and death benefits, the importance of properly titling and/or retitling real property and other assets, Medicare benefits, pre-nuptial agreements, deferred tax retirement accounts, and charitable giving.

Join us on June 5th from 6pm to 8pm at the Chris Hellman Center for Dance, 455 Franklin Street, San Francisco. For more information about this event, please contact San Francisco Ballet Planned Giving Manager Elizabeth Lani at 415.865.6623 orelani@sfballet.org.

This event is jointly hosted by:

(And let me just say that New College of the Law is what you make of it, or rather, was what you made of it since it’s defunct now. Some, like infamous non-attorney “Ivory Madison,” want to use it to make boasts about being “trained as an attorney,” whilst others, you know, graduated, passed the bar and developed a specialty – which do you think is more upworthy, just saying.)

Will Frank regularly drive his BMW K1200 RS sport/touring motorcycle down from Sutro Heights to get to school, that is, when he’s not too busy writing?

We Can Only Hope.

Bon Courage, Frank H. Wu.
