“Dignified dying in Portugal” seminars

Foreign residents’ association afpop is organising two seminars on the issues surrounding death in Portugal and recent changes to the legislation. The seminars will be held at Faro Museum on October 29 and at the Boavista golf clubhouse in Lagos on October 30, both starting at 10.30am (registration at 10am).

The “Dignified Dying in Portugal” seminars will again be presented with the cooperation of some of afpop’s partner organisations – Servilusa Funeral Agencies, ESJ Advogados, Blevins Franks and the British Consulate.

Topics covered include what happens when someone dies in Portugal, particularly focusing on those that may have repatriation issues and other legalities to consider, what to do and who to contact, the types of funerals, cremation, the legal aspect of wills, living wills and organ donation, funeral plans, inheritance tax issues and lessening the tax burden on dependents.

Entrance is free to afpop members while non-members will be charged €20 payable at the seminar.

Representatives from the organisations attending will be available afterwards to answer questions or for private consultations. Contact the afpop office on 282 458 509 or by email [email protected] to reserve your place.
