Although many people do not want to discuss disability or death, setting up an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. Proper estate planning not only puts you in charge of your finances and assets, it can also prevent your loved ones from having to bear the expense, delay, and frustration that is often associated with managing your estate once you become disabled or pass away.
Proper estate planning can enable you to prepare for the following situations:
- You become disabled and can no longer take care of yourself and/or your affairs;
- You need someone to take care of your minor children;
- You want your family to be able to avoid the estate administration/probate process;
- You want to leave specific gifts/bequests to certain loved ones; and
- You want to leave your affairs in order upon your disability or death.
