Leave a Meaningful Legacy
Estate planning is a vital component of a well-thought-out financial plan. The goal is to guide the distribution of your assets after your death in order to protect your family and leave behind a legacy of thoughtfulness and caring.
Creating a solid estate plan also benefits you directly: Knowing that you have put a plan in place to help your family after you’re gone provides you with peace of mind.
Besides detailing where and how your worldly goods will be distributed, a comprehensive estate plan allows you to:
- Offer instructions and/or funds for your care and treatment if you become disabled.
- Name a guardian for minor children.
- Help family members with special needs.
- Continue aiding charitable causes that you support.
- Set up trusts with various purposes.
- Shield family members from creditors.
- Provide life insurance, disability income insurance, or long-term care insurance for your family in case you become ill or suffer injury.
- Provide for the transfer of your business when you retire, die, or become disabled.
- Minimize taxes, court costs, and unnecessary legal fees after you die.
