What is estate planning?
Almost everyone has an estate. In fact, your estate is comprised of everything you own— your car, home, checking and savings accounts, investments, retirement accounts, life insurance, furniture, and personal items/family heirlooms. It doesn’t matter how large or how small your estate is, you can’t take it with you when you depart.
Is estate planning for everyone?
Yes. Estate Planning is not just for older people, it’s just that people tend to think about it more as they get older. Unfortunately, nobody can predict exactly how long they will live. Illness and accidents happen to people of all ages, and from all walks of life.
Estate planning is also not just for “the wealthy.” Good estate planning can benefit families and individuals regardless of the level of their assets.
One of the most simple steps in Estate Planning is to have a will and to make sure you have the proper beneficiary designations on life insurance, retirement accounts (IRA, 401(k), 403(b)(7), etc.), checking accounts, and savings accounts.
