There are people who constantly think about what the future will bring, including what will happen after they are gone. There are also people who never think twice about this, as they care about nothing more than "living in the moment."
Regardless of where you fit in, it's important to create an estate plan that will give you and your family peace of mind.
With the right estate plan in place, you know you're making decisions that can improve your future. Furthermore, you never have to worry about what will happen to your assets upon your death.
Some of the most important aspects of an estate plan can include:
-- A will or trust. With either document, you're making it clear as to who receives your assets upon your death.
-- A living will. This comes into play if you are living but unable to make your own medical decisions.
-- Naming a guardian. Do you have children under the age of 18? Who would they live with if you and your spouse passed on? Naming a guardian will alleviate quite a bit of stress in your life.
