“We know how difficult it can be to prepare for financial contingencies, and households that include special needs children face additional obstacles. This workshop will help parents and care givers sort through the estate planning process with reliable, expert guidance,” said Commissioner Board Chair Rebecca Williams.

The panel will include Pasqual Rinaudo, Chief Operating Officer of MidAtlantic Resource Group, John Surguy, a Financial Advisor with MidAtlantic Resource Group.

The Mid Atlantic Resource Group offers a wide range of financial products and advice from financial professionals, with offices throughout New Jersey.
