Getting A Will Is Important
Many people don’t like to discuss things like a will because that means that they need to face mortality. And while this is understandable, the alternative is that the state where you reside will typically then be forced to decide how to distribute and deal with your assets. A will as part of your estate planning goes a long way to ensuring that your wishes will be followed, especially when it comes to key items such as jewelry and other assets. Along with a will it is important that you regularly review the beneficiaries for things like life insurance and other investment accounts.
From time to time you hear about donations being made in the name of someone who passed. This was designated before the person passed because they made their philanthropic intents known and documented. Estate planning is also very useful when it comes to handling larger assets and moving them out of an individual’s name and into other vehicles such as a trust.
Preparing For The Next Generation
