Estate Planning Archives

Consider exactly what you want in your estate plan

It is never too late or too early to get your estate plan set up. Whether you are 18 or 81, creating an estate plan can help your loved ones to handle necessary tasks while they are still mourning your loss. It also gives the chance to make your exact wishes for your estate known without a doubt.

Estate plannning and your business

Estate planning is often thought of as dealing with heirlooms and life insurance payouts once you have passed away. Your business should be handled correctly, though, too. If you have witnessed someone's business fall into the wrong hands after his or her death, you have an idea of what you want to prevent.

What you should know about living trusts

If you have an estate plan in place, congratulations. According to an AARP survey, some 60 percent of people do not have a will or any other type of estate planning. When you have an estate plan, you are not only providing for your family after your death, but you're doing so when they are grieving. This will help make a difficult time a little easier.

Estate planning basics: will vs. trust

If you are interested in determining where your assets go once you die, then estate planning is a smart choice. It is only natural to want to have a say in what happens to the money and property you have made and saved. There are several different estate planning techniques, including establishing a will or trust. Your estate planning strategy depends on your needs and circumstances.

Keep your family values alive with good estate planning

What are family values? Essentially, they are ethical and moral principles that promote the health of the family unit. Nearly all of us have family values, even if we do not recognize them. Perhaps your grandparents taught your parents to be kind and honest. In turn, your parents taught you the same and you passed this philosophy on to your own children.
