Montana State University Extension is collaborating with Montana 4-H Foundation and MSU 4-H Center for Youth Development for an eight-part webinar weekly estate/legacy planning series titled Fabulous Fridays through March 3rd.

January 27, 2023: "What Factors Decide Who Receives Your Property After You Die?"

The property of Montanans who do not have a written will or a trust is distributed according to the “law of intestate succession.” However, Montanans need to understand how they have titled their property could over-ride this law. And they need to realize that beneficiary designations cannot be “undone” with a written will or trust. Be sure the assets you have worked so hard to acquire pass to people you want instead of being decided by the Montana Legislature.

The series will run from 10 to 11 am with a 15-minute Q & A afterward.

This webinar series will be presented by Marsha Goetting, MSU Extension Professor. The Montana 4-H Alumni Guest will be Amber Stenson, Attorney.
