Summary

1/7

Estate planning is about accumulating and disposing of your assets.

Estate planning includes planning in case you become unable to speak for yourself, either temporarily or permanently:

  • To keep your financial affairs on track.
  • To assure that you receive the medical care you want, and don't receive the medical care you don't want.

At the least, make sure:

  • You have executed healthcare advance directives
  • You have a valid will that cannot be challenged because of your health at the time you execute it
  • That you name a guardian for any minor children
  • That important papers can be located easily
  • That passwords for online accounts are accessible
  • That you have arrangements in place to take care of pets immediately upon your demise and thereafter
