Older clients may have specific estate planning issues which do not arise for younger clients, relating to the higher risk of health issues and the need to enter the aged care system. This session reviews what advisers need to consider in relation to the following:

  • Advanced healthcare directives:

    • how do these interact with a medical power of attorney?

    • what issues and decisions do they cover?

    • can multiple directives be active at the same time?

  • Aged care and refundable accommodation deposits (RAD):

    • third party funding of the RAD – setting up loan arrangement

    • what happens to the RAD on death

    • what happens to the main residence CGT exemption?

  • Appointing the right attorney:

    • choosing the correct type

    • taking care over the powers granted – limiting the powers of your agent

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
