Life events, such as the birth of a child or grandchild, a family marriage or divorce, the passing of a spouse, or the purchase or sale of a home or business, are all reasons to review and update your will and estate plan to best prepare for the future.
Samaritan is offering a FREE Wills & Estate Planning Workshop on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at Samaritan’s headquarters in Mount Laurel (3906 Church Road).
