Description:
We want to share our love and our values with our grandchildren. How can we best make gifts to our kids and grandkids to support the grandchildrens’ college educations? There are ways grandparents can exercise their generosity which can interfere with the child’s eligibility for financial aid. There are better strategies to reduce one’s estate in favor of one’s grandchildren. This workshop will cover the basics of those strategies thus enabling grandparents to get the most bang for their bucks.
