Estate planning

Estate planning is the process of creating a plan for how your assets will be managed and distributed after your death. Here are some key elements of estate planning:

Will: A will is a legal document that outlines your wishes for how your assets will be distributed after your death. It can also name a guardian for any minor children you have and name an executor to manage your estate.

Trusts: A trust is a legal entity that can be used to manage and distribute assets. It can provide for the management of assets for the benefit of a beneficiary and can be used to avoid probate.

Power of Attorney: A power of attorney is a legal document that gives someone else the authority to make financial and/or medical decisions on your behalf if you become unable to do so.

Health Care Proxy: A health care proxy is a legal document that names someone to make medical decisions on your behalf if you become unable to do so.

Beneficiary Designations: Many assets, such as life insurance policies and retirement accounts, allow you to name beneficiaries. It is important to review and update these designations regularly to ensure they align with your estate planning goals.

Estate Taxes: Estate taxes may be owed on the value of your assets when you die. It is important to work with a qualified estate planning attorney and/or tax professional to develop strategies to minimize estate taxes. Charitable Giving: Charitable giving can be a meaningful part of estate planning. It can also provide tax benefits and help support causes that are important to you.
