Estate planning is a crucial step that is often overlooked, but critical to ensuring that a person’s final wishes will be carried out and their assets passed on to those they love with minimal interruption. It provides peace of mind that your loved ones will be provided for when you are gone.
A complete and effective estate plan answers key questions like:
- What assets do I have and how will they be passed on after I am gone?
- Should those assets and accounts be structured to avoid tax penalties?
- Which of my loved ones will get which assets?
- Who will make medical and financial decisions for me should I become incapacitated?
