Estate Planning Options Everyone Should Consider
Creating an estate plan can cause an undue burden on loved ones should the unthinkable happen. Likewise, if you experience a major change in your life, such as new family members, a serious illness or health event, or a divorce, it is likely a good time to update your estate plan.
Attorney Ashley McCartney can answer your questions and help you create a solid estate plan that includes:
- A will: A simple will makes your wishes known pertaining to the distribution of your assets. Your will would include naming your beneficiaries, an executor who will carry out your wishes as well as guardians for your minor children.
- A trust: A living or revocable trust lets you manage your estate and name beneficiaries while you are still alive. You can alter the terms of the trust anytime and also avoid the probate process.
- A power of attorney: If you cannot make financial decisions for yourself, a power of attorney can be named to make those decisions for you. The person you appoint can be a family member or trusted friend who will oversee your financial affairs the way you would want.
- A health care directive: Also known as a living will, this document grants someone you trust to make decisions for you if you are unable to do so yourself due to being terminally ill or unconscious for a lengthy period. That person will make medical decisions for you.
