Volunteer attorneys from Microsoft are teaming with the Eastside Legal Assistance Program (ELAP) to help qualifying low-income residents of King County draft wills, power of attorney or advanced directives during a free clinic in Bellevue on Saturday, Sept. 29.
The clinic will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at a location in north Bellevue. Those interested should call (425) 747-7274 to determine eligibility and make an appointment; walk-ins cannot be accommodated. Interpretation services are available for non-English speaking callers.
A 2016 survey by Gallup found that only 44% of adults in the U.S. have left instructions for how they want their money and estate handled after their death -- and the number is much lower (31%) among low-income populations.
