New Book Can Help You Put Your Papers in Order


Pulling together personal and financial affairs can be overwhelming. A new book published by AARP and the American Bar Association can ease that process, helping readers feel confident that if anything happens to them, they—and their family members—will be well prepared.

AARP author Sally Balch Hurme is visiting California this month on a prerelease tour to discuss the book, ABA/AARP Checklist for My Family: A Guide to My History, Financial Plans and Final Wishes. The book guides readers through the process of gathering financial information, legal documents, online accounts, wishes about medical care and more in one convenient place.

Hurme will be at the Downtown Downey Farmers’ Market on Dec. 13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and at the Whittier Central Library on Dec. 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public, and copies of the book will be given away. To purchase a copy, go to
