How Often To Update Your Estate Plan

People always ask us how often they should review their estate plan, whether it be a Will or Revocable Living Trust. Just as your family changes, your estate plan should reflect those changes. Good estate planning attorneys try to plan ahead for as many contingencies as possible in each estate plan. However, even the best estate planning attorney cannot plan for every change down the road.

Therefore, we recommend that you have your estate plan reviewed every 3-5 years, or sooner if there is a major change in your family, or you change your mind about something in your plan.

An estate plan is not a static document, and must be updated throughout the course of your life.

Our firm offers different maintenence programs, and we even offer a secure online service to store and access your important documents. If you are interested in having our firm review your estate plan–whether it be your will, trust, powers of attorney, or living wills, please do not hesitate to contact us by email ( or telephone (215-706-0200).
