Upcoming Webinars and Events

We are very excited about a new program we are offering called Get Wise Wednesdays that will be available to anyone interested in learning more about the services provided by Achieva Family Trust. On the last Wednesday of the month, AFT Staff will be available to answer questions, via phone, on various topics that are important to individuals with disabilities and their families. This program is open and free to anyone who is interested in learning more about Achieva Family Trust.

The next Get Wise Wednesday will be held on March 31, and the topic will be Achieva Family Trust Charitable Residual Account. You will have the opportunity that day to call in and ask any questions that you may have in regard to Special Needs Trusts and ABLE Accounts. Questions may range from asking about the different types of Trusts we administer, to how to open a Trust and/or ABLE Account.

Please call in that day at 412-995-5000 x434 or x589

to speak to a staff member between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.
