COLUMBIA, Mo. – University of Missouri Extension wants to help baby boomers who will be transferring wealth to the next generation.
MU Extension agricultural business specialist Darla Campbell says 70 percent of baby boomers are expected to retire by 2020. A three-night program offers help for farm families and individuals with succession, estate and retirement planning.
“Your Farm, Your Business, Your Future” will be held 6-9 p.m. Thursday Jan. 17, Jan. 24 and Jan. 31 at various locations throughout Missouri.
“This class is designed to help owners of farms and small businesses begin creating a plan for transferring a farm or business to the next generation, as well as addressing the many issues involved with planning your estate transition,” says Campbell.
MU Extension specialists, including a certified financial planner and a Missouri probate judge, teach the program.
Topics include goal setting, assessing the strengths and weaknesses of a farm or business, the probate process in Missouri, estate planning tools, and calculating retirement needs.
