What is Estate Planning?

The purpose of creating an estate plan is to decide how your assets will be distributed after your death. Unlike a verbal promise that you will help a grandchild pay for college or give a specific heirloom to one of your children, an estate plan is legally binding, giving you peace of mind that your instructions will be executed exactly as you wanted.

Benefits of Estate Planning

  • Set up your estate plan to maximize tax savings.
  • Relieve your heirs of the hassle of settling your estate on their own.
  • Plan everything out now to avoid fighting over certain assets later.
