Elder Law Boot Camp, council to provide free legal knowledge

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) -

 

It's always nice to have a plan for the future. However, many of you, particularly seniors, might not have the legal knowledge to set affairs in order. At a press conference Thursday, the Caddo and Bossier Councils on Aging formally announced the first ever Northwest Louisiana Elder Law Boot Camp.

It's a training session to be held on January 23rd at RiverView Hall. Seniors will have access to information about estate planning, like drawing up a will or explaining the power of attorney. Information about public benefits, like freezing your social security number, will also be available. Lawyers will even be present to help guide seniors through any issues, and it's all for free. Organizers say the boot camp will provide safety and peace of mind to seniors.

You must RSVP for the boot camp if you're interested. The number to call is 318-676-7900. Lunch will be provided to those who call by Friday. Again, it'll be held on January 23rd at RiverView Hall from 9 AM to 1 PM.
