Having everything in order for your loved ones when you are gone is of the utmost importance, and the way to do that is with an estate plan.
What is an Estate Plan?
An estate plan is, basically an outline of what you would like done with your personal belongings and wealth when you pass away. An estate plan is legally binding, meaning that no one can come in and act against your wishes.
Your estate includes everything you own – insurance policies, bank accounts, furniture, cars, etc. When you pass away, you may want to give certain possessions to specific family members or to a charity. The only way your wishes can be respected is if you create an estate plan. Without one, the laws in your state will decide how your estate will be divided.
