Most people are aware of the need to take the appropriate steps to pass their assets onto their heirs and to avoid probate fees and taxes. However, in addition to preserving assets, a solid estate plan should also designate someone to handle business and health matters in the event of incapacity. To that end, you should always take the time to create a living will, which outlines your healthcare preferences, as well as a durable power of attorney which grants someone the power to make financial and medical decisions on your behalf in the event you become unable to do so.
A complete estate plan typically includes:
- Asset management
- Revocable Living Trust including funding instructions, letters to financial institutions and transfer deeds.
- Irrevocable trusts
- Pour Over Will(s)
- Durable Power(s) of Attorney for Property
- Advance Health Care Directive(s) (“Living Wills”)
- Transfer of property into your trust
