Procrastinating & Estate Planning

Many people feel guilty about procrastinating about their estate plan. But procrastination is normal. Frankly, not many people want to consider their own demise. But you can’t wait until it’s too late to start your estate planning. Remember that it’s not just about you, but it’s about your family and legacy. The younger you are, the more options we have to protect your estate and the easier it is to plan.

Make sure you have valid Powers of Attorney, a will and/or a trust, and any other estate planning tools that your attorney deems necessary.

Estate planning is not just about tax planning. Today, it’s about a few more things:

  1. Your legacy — in this complex world, a poorly written estate plan can tear a family apart forever.
  2. Your long-term care plan — we are living longer, and long-term care is expensive. How will you protect your family while paying for your long-term care?
  3. Asset protection for your loved ones — no one wants their hard earned savings to be part of their heir’s divorce settlement, lawsuit judgment or creditor claim.
