Death isn't an easy subject for people to broach.
Estate planning and elder care attorney Leigh Hilton is working to change that taboo. Hilton has published a book to guide people through the thornier parts of estate planning in Who Gets Your Stuff When You Die: 14 Secrets for Protecting Everyone You Love & Everything You Own. She'll also lead a seminar on estate planning at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at Denton Country Club, 1213 Country Club Road.
Hilton's book guides people through thoughtful estate planning, showing how to leave your wealth to heirs without jeopardizing benefits heirs might need as they age.
Who Gets Your Stuff breaks down the selection of heirs and executors, how to handle HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) issues for yourself and your adult children, how to deal with multiple marriages and how to approach aging parents about their end-of-life decisions.
Hilton grew up in Denton and practices in Denton. Who Gets Your Stuff costs $15 and is available online at http://bit.ly/ 2pN0Y8H.
