What is it?
Estate planning is where you make arrangements for the management and disposition of assets, both during your life and after your death. The planning involves several aspects including legal, tax, investment, financial planning and life insurance. When you plan an estate, you anticipate death and inheritance taxes, and keep the taxes to your heirs and beneficiaries as low as possible. Estate planning also allows you to decide who will be the beneficiaries of your wealth rather than the government. An estate plan provides you with control over how, when, and to whom your assets are distributed to and appoint who will administer those assets (executor, trustee, etc.). If you were to die without an estate plan (a will or trust) the Courts will decide how all of this done regardless of you or your family’s desires.
Generally, an estate plan can include living trust, health care directive, power of attorney, and pour over wills.
