What is Estate Planning?
Estate planning is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your loved ones. Generally speaking, it’s the process of determining what will happen to your estate after you pass away. Your estate is defined as all of the property you own at the time of your death, including real estate, personal assets and belongings, bank accounts, stocks and other securities, and life insurance policies. While planning, you may also consider health care wishes, which can include the types of life-prolonging care you wish to receive if you are unable to make an election on your own.
Benefits of an Estate Plan
A comprehensive estate plan ensures your wishes about your property will be honored. And by identifying how your property will be transferred, it gives you peace of mind that your loved ones will be provided for. An estate plan is also critical for minimizing taxes and legal hurdles that could impact your beneficiaries. If you own a business, your estate plan should also include any business succession plans you have created.
