Many People Think Having Their Estate Plan Done Is Like Updating Software Or Getting The Oil Changed In Your Car
“I’ll eventually get around to it.”
Being prepared with an estate plan allows you to be sure you are taken care of if you become disabled and your loved ones are taken care of financially after you pass away. It can also eliminate chaos and uncertainty when the time comes for you to receive medical care and are unable to communicate your wishes. Finally, the probate process is a lengthy and difficult process that can be totally avoided with an updated estate plan. The time to get this done is now, before you actually need it.
And no one can predict when that will be.
Most people do not realize what an enormous gift creating your estate plan is for your family. The first part is GETTING your estate plan but just as important is UPDATING your estate plan.
Here Are 7 Life Events And Reasons To Update Your Estate Plan:
- If you have married, divorced or remarried
- If you have had a child
- If you plan to leave money to a charity or organization
- If laws affecting your estate change
- If someone you included in your plan dies
- If your assets have changed significantly
- If your documents were prepared in a different state
