The Four Elements of a Good Estate Plan

Estate planning is for everyone. You may not think you have an estate, but you do. Your estate is made up of everything you own. This includes your car, house, bank accounts, investments, furniture, life insurance, personal possessions and more. To ensure that your belongings are given to those you love in the way you want, estate planning is key.

Keep control over everything you own for as long as possible.

Mr. Winter will assist you in setting up a trust so that you remain in control over your finances. With a trust, you appoint someone to take over if you become unable to manage your estate. This saves the person from the inconvenience of submitting paperwork and obtaining approval to handle your financial accounts.

Plan for disability: Name who will run your affairs and give instructions.

Planning ahead for a time when you may require long-term care and/or Medicaid allows you to protect as many assets as possible. You will be able to name the person who will manage your finances in the event you are unable to do so.

Plan for death: Name who will run your affairs and give instructions.

While it can be upsetting to discuss death, it’s important to leave instructions for the care of your affairs and division of your estate. An estate plan, prepared by an attorney, is the best way to ensure that your wishes are followed.

Avoid all reasonable avoidable expenses and delays such as probate, taxes, fees, and more.

By preparing for the future with estate planning, you will assist your loved ones with bypassing avoidable expenses. During this emotional time, they will be thankful for your thoughtfulness.
