It is easy to put estate planning to the side. However, it is imperative to make advance plans now so you, your loved ones and your property are protected. Many people find it important to plan their estate when they are expecting their first child or have children, when they are retiring, when they have acquired assets, and when they may need surgery.
You should take the time to arrange for the transfer of your property upon your death. Your property may include, but is not limited to cash, real estate, cars, stocks, bonds, investment and retirement accounts. Furthermore, you would want to appoint a guardian for your minor children and someone you trust to represent your estate and manage any trusts that you have created. Planning ahead can help to ensure your property is properly transferred, your loved ones are protected and costly litigation is avoided.
Estate planning includes plans to protect yourself, your loved ones and your property, should you become incompetent and cannot manage your assets anymore or make important medical decisions.
