Frank and Hazel’s story

Modern Woodmen members: Frank (quoted here) and Hazel Champagne

City: Benton, Ark.

Occupation: Retired

Their Modern Woodmen representative: Cheryl Tidwell, Sherwood, Arkansas

Why is estate planning important to you? We set up a living trust for Hazel and me. This is a second marriage for us, and we wanted everything set up properly. But the most important thing was setting up a trust for my grandson. Robert has autism. He will need help with his finances, a place to live and help with his daily living after we’re gone. 

How is Modern Woodmen helping you? Cheryl listened to our concerns and helped us get a plan together. She also set up an appointment and accompanied us to the attorney’s office.

What’s something you were surprised to learn during this process? If you just have a will, that information is filed at the courthouse for anyone to review. A trust is between you, your family and the attorney.

What words of wisdom do you have for others? Keep good records and know where all your important papers are.

Cheryl's advice: When it comes to estate planning, everyone’s situation is different. Some people have circumstances where they need a living trust. Some people just need beneficiaries updated. Do the work, get your plan completed and then go live your life. You’ll feel good knowing you have secured your family’s future.

Term life insurance

Term life insurance provides low-cost protection and peace of mind for a certain period of time. While permanent protection is an important part of an overall life insurance plan, term insurance can protect you by helping to cover temporary needs, such as helping to pay off your mortgage or other debt. This can be an affordable way to help make sure your dreams and goals are protected.
