Making plans that your family will be cared for after your death can provide you with peace of mind during your life. One of the key steps to this planning is to make sure your estate documents (including wills and trusts) are up to date.
With a will or a trust, you control how your assets are handled at your death. You determine whether the assets are divided equally, or if someone has a greater need. You know best whether your beneficiaries can handle money now, or whether it should be managed by someone else for a period of time. You can also set conditions on a beneficiary’s receipt of the funds (i.e. no drug use, must pursue a college degree, etc.).
Estate planning allows you to select the people who will care for your most precious possessions. You may select guardians for your children; trustees for your assets; and health care representatives for your own health care needs.
Also, proper estate planning may help you reduce your estate’s tax liability, and may save your heirs from the cost and effort of probate proceedings.
