It is crucial to create and properly maintain a well-structured estate plan that addresses your family’s needs. Here are some suggestions:
- Create/update your will – Your will is the primary document used to transfer your wealth after death. Deciding now how you wish your legacy to be passed on to your heirs may avoid problems later.
- Review your estate plan – Review and reassess your estate plan whenever you change marital status, make a career change, or move to a different state.
- Select an executor that will ensure your instructions will be scrupulously followed and your beneficiaries will receive personal attention.
- Consider trust and gifting strategies – If you have a sizable estate to manage, you may save on taxes through establishing trusts and gifting.
