Planning Ahead

Estate Planning

In 2018 Merrill Lynch fielded a study where 52% of respondents stated that dying without their affairs in order was "irresponsible", but only 18% of those 55 and older have the recommended essentials of a will, a healthcare directive and a durable power of attorney.

Estate Planning

Uncomfortable Conversations that need to take place:

Estate Planning is about more than avoiding probate or avoiding estate taxes. It is an all-encompassing plan for business and property succession. A properly prepared estate plan can keep your family out of probate court—or at least limit the amount of time they spend there—and distribute your estate to ensure your business interests and property interest pass according to your wishes; but it also establishes a plan for guardianship of your kids, gives directives to your doctors, and permits your family to have access to your medical care and estate when you are unable to care for yourself.

 

Many people put off developing an estate plan because they do not want to think about the end of life. We get it. But leaving these conversations to later can leave your family in a very expensive and very public probate action.
