During this session, we will explore the legal background and administrative steps relative to the early termination of a charitable remainder trust (CRT). This will include a review of both a "cash out" in which the donor receives the present value of his/her income interest as well as a gift of this income interest along with the remainder value to charity. Our guest speakers will be Frank Minton and Bill Zook, two leading national consultants in gift planning who have specialized in the early termination of CRTs for over 20 years. Zoom Details below.

Does Covid-19 Cause Physical Loss or Damage for Business Interruption Insurance Claims?

Tuesday, October 13, 2020
12:30-1:30 pm ET
(11:30 am CT, 10:30 am MT, 9:30 am PT)

While the CARES Act has helped to keep many businesses afloat by propping up payrolls, there are other losses that are not covered. Claims for business interruption insurance coverage by policyholders have been met with rejections and policyholders have not fared well in the courts. Our panelists will discuss the recent suits and the theories under which policyholders have sued insurance companies for physical loss or damage and offer practical guidance going forward.
