If you don't have an estate plan or need to make updates, it's time to make it a priority. If you are like most people, you have a to do list a mile long. However, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to spend a few hours making sure your affairs are in place in the event of your disability or death.
Everyone, including you, needs an estate plan, regardless of your level of wealth. A carefully drafted estate plan has many benefits, including:
Identifying who will step in should you become incapacitated to control your financial, property and health care decisions.
Designating the right people to care for your minor children if you are gone.
Clearly setting forth your wishes regarding how your estate be settled when you die.
Relieving your heirs of the hassle and extra costs required to probate your estate.
If you already have an estate plan, it might be time for a check-up. Does your existing estate plan reflect your current needs? Life events such as divorce, deaths and births may necessitate revisions to your plan. Out of date documents may have adverse consequences to you and your family.
