Attorney Andrew Bush Presents Estate Planning Seminar

May 2022 Gen Meeting.jpg

At the ACRTA April 19 meeting, President Willeke introduced guest speaker Andrew Bush, an Ashland area attorney specializing in retirement planning. 

Mr. Bush presented a valuable and comprehensive program and question and answer session on estate planning, wills, trusts, powers of attorney and other important estate documents, and probate court issues.


He explained the differences in revocable and irrevocable trusts and transfer on death, payable on death and other such designations, and he reviewed several other issues such as joint survivorship deeds, step up in basis, gifting money, stocks and property before death verses after death. 


ACRTA very much appreciates Attorney Bush giving of his time to offer us such valuable information on a hugely important topic for retired or retiring educators.  Mr. Bush is an experienced attorney assisting families with retirement issues.


His office is at 128 Church St. in Ashland.
