If someone needed to step in and help one of your clients, could they?
In addition to wills, power of attorneys and medical directives, the number of personal contacts, banking, financial, medical, online and household accounts, usernames and passwords is overwhelming to even the most organized.
In this session we will cover the major categories of information and discuss those items that need to be collected and documented in one place to assist a loved one in the event they need to step in and help – even if only temporarily.
Kay Bransford is the founder of MemoryBanc. Several years ago, her mom called to ask how to get money into their bank account. That call started a six month odyssey. The result was an organizational system that she and her siblings use to help support and care for their parents and their assets.
When colleagues and friends saw what Kay had developed, they asked for their own versions. Kay launched MemoryBanc in 2011 and with the MemoryBanc Register, a 3-ring binder in which users collect and store information and details on personal, financial, medical, online and household accounts.
Before launching MemoryBanc, Kay spent more than 20 years in a variety of sales, marketing and business development positions to include Best, ACA, SIIA, Vocus, Global Secure and Washington Speakers Bureau.
