Women control more than half the personal wealth in the United States – more than $14 trillion, according to a recent study by the Bank of Montreal’s Wealth Institute – and that number is expected to rise to more than $20 trillion over the next three years. While estate planning is important for everyone, regardless of the size of their personal wealth, it becomes especially important for women, who live an average of 5 years longer than men.

To help New Mexico women protect their assets, understand their unique money management needs and make plans to fulfill their end of life wishes, New Mexico State University will host its 10th annual Estate Planning Conference for Women, Feb. 1 and Feb. 8 at the Las Cruces campus. 

The conference is free, but seating is limited and registration is required to attend. Lunch is provided both days, and free parking is available.

“This two-day workshop is really a candid conversation between the participants and the volunteer experts we’ve brought in to guide them,” said Robert Peterson, director of planned giving with the NMSU Foundation, which hosts the event. “They get to know one another, learn from each other and share their experiences and advice as they gain valuable tools to help them confidently work toward their money management and estate planning goals.”

Topics include legal aspects and asset protection; income and transfer taxes; charitable giving; elder law; life insurance; administration of estates and trusts; retirement income planning; and money management.
