What is Estate Planning?
Estate Planning is a process for managing your assets should you become unable to manage them yourself. It includes tools like wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and annuities.
Why is Estate Planning important?
Estate Planning allows you to care for those who are most important to you. If done properly, you can provide legal and financial protection for your family, avoid family or legal disputes over the control of your assets, and bless future generations through planned gifts to your church or favorite charity.
When should I build my estate plan?
Now! It is commonly misunderstood that estate plans are only for end-of-life situations, causing people to wait until later in life to build an estate plan. However, having an estate plan is important for adults of any age. For example, an estate plan will help young parents determine who will take care of children and ensure their children are cared for financially.
