The Arc of NJ Free Webinar - Grandparents: Planning For Your Grandchild with Disabilities

Date: Tuesday, November 7 6:00 pm

A grandparent's support is invaluable to a family caring for a child with a disability. As the financial and legal issues facing the family change over time, grandparents can help bolster a long-term plan for the grandchild's care that will have long-lasting positive effects on an entire family. Hosted by The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute and presented by Hinkle, Fingles, Prior & Fischer, Attorneys at Law, attendees will learn how extended family can help plan financially for a loved one's future.
