What is an Estate Plan?
term Estate Plan simply refers to all of the documents that you have
prepared. It usually includes a Will, a Durable General Power of
Attorney, a Health Care Power of Attorney, and a Living Will at
minimum. It can include much more depending upon your particular needs.
Why is it Necessary to have an Estate Plan?
is very important to have your Estate Plan in order prior to your
passing or disability. Having the proper plan in effect can save taxes,
ensure that the proper individuals will be in charge of handling your
affairs when you can’t, can avoid fights and disagreements among your
family and beneficiaries, and can guarantee your assets pass to those
parties you intend them to pass to.
When a person passes away
without an effective, thorough Estate Plan, the administration, also
referred to as Probate, is often more costly, property passes in ways
the decedent would not intend, and individuals the decedent would not
choose end up managing the estate.
