What is Estate Planning?
Estate Planning determines what happens to your assets if you pass away or are unable to make decisions for yourself. They include Wills, Trusts, Life Insurance, Power or Attorney and Beneficiary forms. Having an estate plan is a sure way to ease that struggle and make sure your assets go where they belong quickly.
Understanding Wills & Trusts
A Will is created and is to be carried out after someone has died vs. Living Will is what someone would want while they are still living and unable to care for themselves. Living Trusts are more asset focused which state wishes for your property.
A Will must also be filed with the courts after someone has deceased to prevent probate issues. It goes into effect after death and dictates who will receive your property and assets.
A Trust is a legal arrangement where a “trustee” manages and holds title to your assets and property and distributes income to the beneficiaries that you select. It goes into effect as soon as its signed and allows you to transfer property and assets while you are still alive. There is no requirement to file a trust so they remain private and only known to those involved.
