The Just in Case Binder

The original Just in Case Binder was created by Harold Empey as both a legacy to his family and out of a passion to help others.  A few years ago, Harold joined with Elaine Lozinski in partnership and in 2020, Harold retired completely from the program, entrusting Elaine Lozinski to lead Just in Case onto its next exciting chapter.

Since its conception, the Just in Case Binder quickly gained popularity and has become a standard reference book and comprehensive guide for putting your affairs in order for incapacity, end of life, serious illness, and other support needs/areas. The Binder is also designed to hold all vital information in one place, readily available for those who will need it when the time comes.

The Just in Case Seminars strive to bring clarity and to create an open dialogue about what it means to plan your Final Affairs.  Participants in the seminars have appreciated the easy discussion and the practical approach to planning for end of life or other emergency situations.  The following are just a few of the topics covered in a Just in Case Seminar:

  • What it means to get your affairs in order
  • The different areas of Final Affair planning and the value of each
  • Discusses the roles of Power of Attorney and Executor
  • Benefits of pre-planning your affairs
  • Information location
  • The importance of family discussion

“Just in Case” binders are sold for $50.00.
