Do I Need an Estate Plan?
Estate planning allows you to maintain some control over your assets after you pass or become incapacitated. Without a thorough estate plan, your already-grieving loved ones may be left with tasks and decisions they are unsure of, or even restricted from completing on their own.
Drafting an estate plan with one of our attorneys provides you with a personalized approach based on your overall situation. By securing a thorough plan together, we can help you divide your assets and establish powers of attorney in a manner you deem appropriate.
When Should I Start Thinking About Estate Planning?
It’s never too soon to start planning for you and your family’s future. By completing a comprehensive estate plan, you can be assured that you, your loved ones, and your possessions are all handled as you see fit when you’re no longer here to take care of them yourself.
Estate plans can be modified as you age to address your current situation. As your family and assets grow, you can adjust your plan accordingly. For this reason, there truly is no time too early to make an estate plan. Once started, continue to review it during different life milestones, such as:
- Getting married
- Purchasing property
- Having a child
- Nearing retirement
- Exploring long-term care solutions
Estate plans can protect you and your family in the case of an unexpected tragedy. By reviewing it after major milestones in your life, you can offer the best protection to your loved ones.
What Documents Are in an Estate Plan?
When drafting your estate plan, there are a handful of common documents that frequently come up. While not all of them may apply to you, it’s worth being cognizant of them should your situation change. These documents include:
- Last will and testament – to arrange for your children and pets, as well as possessions
- Revocable living trust – to redistribute your property now or upon death
- Beneficiary designation – to assign someone to inherit your life insurance, bank account and retirement plan
- Power of attorney – to appoint someone to act on your behalf in financial and legal affairs
- Health care power of attorney – to appoint someone to act on your behalf in medical situations
- Provision for digital assets – to distribute your hard drive and virtual content
- Letter of intent – to document final wishes or requests for burial
- List of important documents – to provide your family with information on how and where to find your legal and financial documents
Our knowledgeable lawyers at Hill & Kinsella are well-versed in the process and ready to assist you as you prepare an estate plan.
