Are you overwhelmed by everything you need to do to create an estate plan? While it’s better to have everything in place now, if that’s too much to handle and would only result in your putting everything off forever, you can try tackling just one thing each month. January: Create Your Napkin Will Start out…
The most well-known estate planning tool, a Last Will & Testament is a legal document which comes into play after you pass away. It outlines who will be given your money, your things, your home and/or other real property.
The Will outlines what happens with your body (burial, cremation). Most Wills also say something about guardianship for your minor children.
Finally, the document will also appoint a person to make sure all these things happen, they are usually called an Executor.
