Benefits

PLANNING YOUR ESTATE

Every adult, no matter your age or your net worth, needs an estate plan.  An estate plan is comprised of one or more documents such as a will, trust and/or beneficiary designation form that control who will pay your final expenses and distribute your assets according to your wishes. This is the plan you determine for the disposal of your estate, which includes where your money in bank accounts, stocks, life insurance policies, personal property and real estate, will go.

WHY DO YOU NEED AN ESTATE PLAN?

Estate plans ensure that your wishes are honored. Creating an estate plan will ensure that your assets go to the people and places you choose, and that your beneficiaries receive your assets. If you take the time and care to plan your estate now, you can provide for your wishes after your lifetime. If you do not have an estate plan, you risk state law determining who will receive your assets.
