At its core, estate planning means taking action to ensure that your assets and personal affairs are structured in such a way that your important wishes are followed when you pass away (or if you become unable to handle your personal affairs because of a significant injury or illness). Estate planning involves reviewing your circumstances, clarifying your wishes, and making important decisions. Every adult should have an estate plan.
Common goals of estate planning include ensuring your assets (including sentimental personal property) are distributed per your wishes after your death, providing for the care and security of minor or disabled children, keeping your financial and personal affairs private, avoiding the cost and hassle of court involvement, and paying less in taxes, among other things.
Estate planning typically includes making a will, setting up a trust, creating power of attorney documents, and establishing an advance healthcare directive.
