Basics of Living Trusts

There is an increasing popularity in using Living Trusts for estate planning instead of the more traditional will/probate process. While there are advantages to the Living Trust arrangement, they are not necessarily the answer we may think it is. This introductory course will cover the anatomy of the Living Trust arrangement and emphasize that this is not something the uninitiated should attempt without professional input. Trusts of any kind can become traps and cause more trouble and expense than intended. Fee $75

Financial Privacy

An in-depth look at the safeguards being used by banks, insurance companies, financial service organizations and the Supreme Court as regards our fourth amendments rights to privacy. We also take time to look into money laundering and the difficult time our legal system has in getting any conviction for money laundering. Finally we do a bit of futuristic guessing as there appears to be a lessening for the need of currency. Some of the proposed alternatives are interesting. Fee $90

The Security in Social Security

In spite of the rhetoric we hear about Social Security and the future problems it may face, the fact remains: Social Security has been with us since 1935 even though it became known as Social Security in 1954. It has not done all that bad of a job and for nearly 2/3 of middle income workers, Social Security is their retirement plan. It needs to be protected and it, in fact, is. The Congressional Budget Office has a different spin on the Social Security going broke scenario. It's not going broke, in fact it can't go broke. A real in-depth look at the horror stories we continue to hear. Not true! Fee $60

Trust Me...Sign Here

An ethics class dealing with the one thing we never want to hear... "That's not what you told me!" Especially if it's exactly what we did say and that very thing represents the problem we're facing. In this class, we work with ethical dilemmas not caused by us. Usually the problem was caused by another agent who had the client before we did. But the customer is unhappy and we are the ones who have to deal with him. This class suggests a few things that may help. Fee $45

When It Gets Personal

Academic ethical principles are easy to adopt with talking about a hypothetical problem. But; it's often an entirely different story when it's something that involves us personally. It's not business in this class, it's personal. When things require both our attention and our finances something has to give. The question is...What? In this class we largely interact with ethical issues that have confronted us on a very personal basis. We investigate ethical problems and dilemmas and as a class usually come up with conclusions that match our personal ethical composite. An interesting trip outside the ethical box...you'll enjoy this. Fee $45

Who Gets Well...Who Gets Wealthy

This course deals with both traditional long term care options from assistance in home to clinical nursing care. We show how nursing homes are getting Medicare to pay for long term care albeit the fact that Medicare steadfastly claims that they do not pay for long term care. We also look at Iowa's Asset Preservation (Partnership) and Nebraska's Long Term Care Partnership programs. Both states have requirements for a specific 4 hour CE course for these programs. THIS 6 HOUR COURSE DOES SATISFY THE 4 HOUR REQUIREMENT FOR IOWA. AT THIS TIME IT DOES NOT SATISFY THE NEBRASKA REQUIREMENT. This course is a comprehensive look at traditional long term care options and is a valuable resource regardless of whether you work in the long term care market or just need information on a personal basis. Fee $90
