What is Estate Planning?
Estate planning is one of the most important steps any person can take to make sure that their final property and health care wishes are honored, and that loved ones are provided for in their absence. By having a proper estate plan, not only can estate taxes to paid to the government be minimized and often eliminated, but an individual can ensure that their assets are transferred properly to their loved ones.
How Can an Estate Plan Help?
Regardless of your age, or the size and complexity of your estate, an estate plan can accomplish the following:
Identify the family members and other loved ones that you wish to receive your property after your death.
Ensure that your property will be transferred to those you have identified, as quickly and with as few legal hurdles as possible.
Minimize the amount of taxes that will need to be paid in order for your property to pass to others after your death.
Avoid the time and costs associated with the probate process by utilizing estate planning devices like living trusts and “payable on death” bank accounts.
Dictate the kinds of life-prolonging medical care you wish to receive should you be unable to make your wishes known when the time comes.
Set forth the kind of funeral arrangements you would like, and how related expenses are to be paid.
