Estate planning* ensures an orderly transfer of property in accordance to your wishes when you die, as well as management of your financial affairs if you become disabled or terminally ill. It also ensures that taxes are minimized so your heirs receive maximum benefits.
Everyone should consider if they need an estate plan, regardless of the size of his or her estate, because without one, upon death, your assets will be disposed of according to state and federal laws.
Your estate is made up of everything you own, including your house, life insurance policies, investments, company retirement plan, personal items such as household furniture, cars and clothes, and your debts.
