Is Estate Planning On Your 2019 To-Do List?

January 3, 2019

Estate planning is often one of those things that you never get around to tackling. With the everyday pressures of life, it tends to linger in the background. Besides, who wants to think about death?

RCO Law Attorney Brad Blandin suggests considering the sense of security and peace of mind it offers for you, as well as your loved ones.

"No matter your stage in life, you should have at least a basic estate plan.  An estate plan will provide security for your spouse and loved ones. It will also provide you with a sense of relief knowing that your affairs are in order," he explains.

Individuals often own a home, bank accounts, investments, life insurance, retirement accounts, and personal property.  What happens if you are in a coma and are unable to manage these assets? Who has the authority to act on your behalf if you are incapacitated? What happens to these assets when you pass?

An estate plan will ensure that you choose the answers to these questions using a Last Will and Testament, Financial Power of Attorney, Health Care Power of Attorney, and Living Will.

Estate planning is a valuable investment for the financial health and security for you and your loved ones. 

Engage an attorney who will become a trusted advisor and who will guide you through establishing, or updating, your estate plan.  Make your estate plan a top priority in 2019 for you and for your family.
