DID YOU KNOW THAT PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE NOW CAN HELP SECURE THE FUTURE OF YOUR FAMILY, 
FRIENDS AND CAUSES IMPORTANT TO YOU FOREVER?

PLANNING FOR YOUR FUTURE IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK

Many people believe planning for the future is an expensive, long process, but often this assumption is just not true. Creating a plan is easy, you just need to decide what is important to you and make sure this is where your assets will go.  

The reality is more like this…

- Many assets can be transferred outside of your will.
- If you do not create a plan, the state will create a plan for you and this may not match your goals. 
- A well-written will doesn’t have to be long, sometimes it can be as short as just a few pages. 
- Include PBS KANSAS (KPTS, Inc.) as one of your beneficiaries in your Will or Living Trust and part of your assets will come   to the station upon your death.
