Other Upcoming Events

1847Financial will host Dennis Mahoney, the Managing Director of IKOR of Eastern PA, on Wednesday, April 6, at 5:30 p.m. on Zoom. Dennis will be discussing the Role of a Life Care Management Provider as a component of your special needs plan. IKOR provides medical advocacy and financial advocacy support for individuals with special needs and their families. Families with children and other dependents with special needs, no matter what the age or disability, face many serious questions about how to best prepare for the future well-being of their loved ones. A lot of time is focused on the legal and financial planning but what really happens when the primary caregivers are no longer here? Our goal is to make sure attendees learn the importance of integrating all the necessary pieces into one cohesive plan, so the vision they have for their child’s life can become a reality, whether they are here or not. Click here to register for this meeting. Please contact Pat with questions at pbergmaier@1847financial.com.
