How Estate Planning Can Benefit You
Proper estate planning goes much further than just making a will. We can help you prepare for the most difficult scenarios with our experience in:
- Trusts – A trust is different from a will, as it is an account that can distribute to a property or beneficiary before or after you pass on. You can establish when a trust pays out, such as a certain age for a beneficiary, or when a certain event happens, like college graduation.
- Wills – This is the most common tool used in estate planning. A will determines who will inherit what from your estate after your passing, and it also keeps loved ones from arguing about your last wishes.
- Power of attorney – When you are not able to make decisions on your own, you can grant someone the legal authority of being a power of attorney. This will grant your chosen person (like a trusted loved one or a lawyer) the ability to make financial decisions on your behalf.
- Health care directives – In times of a tragic accident or illness, you may not be able to communicate on your own when it is time to make serious decisions like whether you want to continue life support. These “living wills” will relieve the burden on your loved ones of making major decisions.
There is no telling what life may bring to you tomorrow, so why not prepare yourself by acting today? We take the time to truly understand your unique needs then create a custom plan for you to help you meet your personal goals.
