ESTATE PLANNING TIMELINE
When Do You Need an Estate Plan or Package?
It’s never too early to get an estate plan in place. No matter your stage in life, it’s important to ensure that your care and finances will be handled appropriately, and that your family is set up in a good position should the unforeseen happen.
Consider creating a will, trust, or an incapacity plan to protect your assets and ensure end-of-life care is clear and spelled out.
Having a family is the perfect time to update your estate plan to ensure assets are passed down and legal guardianship is clear.
Start a Business
A trust or business succession plan can help make it easier to control your business, tax planning and privacy purposes.
As you accumulate assets in your lifetime, it may be necessary to set up a trust to avoid probate and make sure your assets are protected.
Divorce / Remarriage
A divorce or remarriage is the perfect time to change power of attorney, update estate plans and incapacity plans.
This milestone is a good time to make sure your estate plan is up to date—and to prepare for the years ahead.
The Elder Years
As you get older, it’s important to continue to make sure affairs are in order, and your estate plans and incapacity plans are up to date.
