Estate planning involves several documents that tell your family, your friends, your doctors, your financial institutions, the courts and the public what you want to have happen in case something happens to you while you are alive and after you die. Depending upon your situation, the documents may include a will, a trust, a financial power of attorney, a medical power of attorney, a physician’s directive, a declaration of guardian and an agent to control disposition of remains. Estate Planning also involves advice on the beneficiary designations for handling of non-probate assets, including life insurance policies, bank accounts, brokerage accounts, 401Ks, IRAs and profit sharing plans. Having the appropriate documents in place can save you and your family worry, heartache and money.
