Making the Most of Your Legacy
Estate planning is a key element of a comprehensive financial plan because it ensures your family is cared for and supported after you’re gone.
An estate plan must continually evolve over a lifetime. It starts with building an estate during early adulthood and providing support for one’s family over a long period of time in case of premature death. As individuals age and leave the workforce, the plan changes to focus on the transfer of accumulated wealth to loved ones while minimizing estate taxes.
Common Estate Planning Objectives
- Ensure that surviving family members will maintain their current standard of living
- Provide for the continued care of a disabled child or dependent parent
- Provide sufficient capital to fund future needs for a child or grandchild
- Pass on a family business or treasured property
- Make a charitable bequest
- Minimize taxation and probate fees upon death
- Equalize bequests to children or grandchildren
The key to estate planning is thorough documentation and review. As your life evolves and circumstances change, it’s essential to review your estate plan, including your power of attorney and will. Our team can assist you with the review process, and if you do not already have a lawyer, we can refer you to one to make the necessary changes to your will or power of attorney.
