Creating an optimal strategy for your estate is more than just managing estate taxes. It’s about organizing assets so they pass to family, loved ones or a charity in the manner you wish. It’s about maximizing how much you leave behind, while ensuring your financial needs are met for the rest of your life.
Most people believe that estate planning is only necessary for the wealthy, but this simply isn’t true. There are many reasons why you should implement an estate plan, regardless of your net worth. Proper estate planning will define who inherits assets and who becomes the guardian of minor children or dependents with special needs. The components of estate planning usually include a will, durable powers of attorney and medical powers of attorney.
