Nebraska Extension and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Center for Agricultural Profitability will host a transition and estate planning workshop for farmers and ranchers in Weeping Water from 9:30 a.m. to noon on March 14, at the office of Nebraska Extension in Cass County, 8400 144th Street, Suite 100.
Allan Vyhnalek, an extension educator for farm and ranch transition and succession, will offer tools and strategies to effectively plan, start and complete estate plans, offer background on common mistakes during the process, and highlight essential considerations for creating and carrying out estate and succession plans.
Brandon Dirkschneider, managing principle at Insurance Design Management in Omaha, will also present during the workshop. Dirkschneider is a Certified Financial Planner and Certified Farm Transition Specialist.
“The common mistake is that most know that they need an estate plan, but never get around to putting a plan into a legal document,” Vyhnalek said. “Over several years, at the end of the workshop, the most common comment is that the participants wished that they had started learning the steps to start and complete a plan sooner.”
The workshop is free to attend, but registration is required by March 13 by calling the office of Nebraska Extension in Cass County at 402-267-2205.
