we have organized for our later years. Protect
those investments - and see what you need to do to pass
them to the person or people of your choice - should you leave this earth suddenly.

for - make sure they get passed to the people you would
prefer. Don't leave it to a government official to
decide - okay?
Just because your are working and living overseas -
