Why Plan Your Estate?
Estate Planning is important, no matter what the size of your estate may be. Through estate planning, you ensure that your assets will go to your intended beneficiaries. You also may protect your estate from taxes, court costs and attorneys fees, and prevent misunderstandings among your heirs and financial confusion after your death. In addition, you can protect your estate against possible future mental or physical incapacity and the catastrophic costs of long-term medical and nursing care.
When should you consider Estate Planning?
The simple answer is that estate planning should be done now, and focus on the situations you know and expect in the next few years. Estate planning is really planning for unforeseen contingencies, not just planning for what happens at the end of a hopefully long and productive life. If we are unexpectedly incapacitated, who will manage our assets and care for ourselves and our dependants? We can always update our estate plan as circumstances change. However, it is usually too late to create an estate plan after the unexpected happens.
