Find out how you can leave a legacy to your loved ones
Let’s say you have a family of four, you own a couple of cars, a nice house, and some money tucked away in savings and investments. In the event of your demise, who gets the things you leave behind? Is it family? A relative? Or perhaps an organization you care deeply about? To carry out your wishes, you need what is called estate planning.
What is estate planning?
Estate planning is making the necessary arrangements so that everything you own, or “estate”, will go to the right people when you die. An estate may include land properties, vehicles, bank accounts, investments and insurance, furniture, jewelry and other items of value.
So, why is estate planning important?
Estate planning can be a complex and tedious process so it would be best to have another person help you along. That person could be a hired lawyer, a professional financial advisor or a trusted friend who can help with the planning, documentation and fulfillment of your will.
