Too many women still haven't taken control of what will happen to their wealth and their assets. If you don't plan, the government will decide who'll act for you when you're sick...who'll manage your estate when you die...who'll get everything you've worked for. Everyone needs to plan, but women face unique issues that are often ignored in “typical” discussions of estate planning.Smart Women Protect Their Assetsoffers the specific guidance women need to safeguard their futures and control where their assets will go. Leading estate planner Wynne A. Whitman offers smart, up-to-date, and easy-to-use advice for the scenarios millions of women will face. You'll discover how to protect children of a previous marriage...give gifts the right way...do the easy planning that may save you nearly a million dollars...get the Living Will and Power of Attorney you simply must have...and a whole lot more. Written by a woman for women, this is a quick, focused, engaging, and practical book packed with simple checklists and “what-to-do-next” advice: information every woman can act on, right now.
