Zoom Life Planning Document Seminar

Wednesday, August 5 @ 5:30 pm

MELS WORKSHOP for END OF LIFE DOCUMENTS: Wills, Health Care Proxies, Power of Attorney

Wednesday, August 5, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

DC 37 Municipal Legal Services and Volunteers of Legal services will host a Zoom webinar on end of life documents for union members on Aug. 5 at 5:30 p.m.

Learn from Stephen Shepard, supervising attorney of the Wills Unit at MELS and Peter Kempner, an attorney at Volunteers of Legal Service, about how to prepare a will, advance medical directive, and a power of attorney.

Sadly the COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us of the importance of end-of-life planning.

Over 22,000 NYC residents have died so far, many of whom were elderly or front line and essential workers. Yet the vast majority did not have a will or health care proxy. 

Many other New Yorkers were incapacitated or hospitalized and had not designated someone to tend to their affairs through a power of attorney.

Learn how you can create these essential documents and give yourself and your family some peace of mind. Please register in advance for this online seminar by emailing MELSSCREENINGUNIT@DC37.net or call 212- 815-1111.
