What is Estate Planning?

Estate Planning is something that everyone needs to think about at some point in their lives. The sooner you have a plan in place the better. You need to spell out your wishes when it comes to your property and your assets. You need to think about who would be the guardian of any minor children and who would have the power to control your finances. These are legal issues that might be necessary were you to pass away or be unable to make decisions for yourself.

Types of Estate Planning Documents

Every individual and family should have at least four essential estate planning documents, including:

  • A Will or Trust, including a Last Will and Testament, Inter-testamentary Trust, Revocable Living Trust or Irrevocable Trust
  • Durable, Financial or Legal Power of Attorney
  • Medical or Healthcare Power of Attorney
  • A Living Will or Advanced Healthcare Directive
