Why Create An Estate Plan?
Many people think they do not need to create an estate plan until they are over a certain age or have a certain amount of assets. The truth is all adults should have some type of estate planning documents to protect their interests while they are alive as well as when they die.
The most basic estate plan will include legal documents such as a general or statutory power of attorney and living will, medical power of attorney, or a combined medical power of attorney and living will to protect your interests while you are alive as well as a will that includes your instructions on how you wish to distribute your assets when you die. Your estate plan may be a simple one or may also include a trust. There are many types of trusts that can be tailored to your family’s unique circumstances and future financial stability.
If you already have an estate plan, but have recently experienced a significant life change, such as divorce, marriage, birth of a child, home or land purchase or death of a spouse, updating your estate as soon as possible is crucial to safeguard your legacy.
