LA CRESCENT, MINNESOTA – Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services (SMRLS) will be holding a free Wills for Seniors clinic on Wednesday March 15, 2017 at the   La Crescent Public Library.

This clinic provides low income seniors with the opportunity to obtain free estate planning documents at a convenient time and location.  Clinic attendees work individually with volunteers to draft their documents, which are then reviewed and approved by an experienced estate planning attorney prior to signing.

Having a will and health care directive brings peace of mind for many people, even low income individuals, because they know that they have planned ahead for their future.

This is a free clinic, but since it is aimed at low income individuals, attendees must call to be screened for eligibility and to schedule an appointment.  Interested seniors should call the SMRLS intake number, 1-888-575-2954.

This program is funded by grant from the UCare Foundation and is part of SMRLS’ program to offer free estate planning documents to low income seniors throughout the our service area.

For more information, please contact Andrea Palumbo at and 651-222-5863.
