Protect Your Assets with an Estate Plan
- October 1, 2020
It is estimated that $30 trillion will pass from boomers to millennials over the next 30 years. You should inform your family of all the assets you own, or else they may never find out.
Having the proper knowledge of estate planning concepts, necessities, and mistakes is both advantageous to you and your heirs. It is important to ask yourself the following questions throughout your life to ensure that your assets are protected through life’s inevitable changes.
- When was the last time you reviewed your will and beneficiary designations?
- Are the beneficiaries of your retirement accounts current?
- If something were to happen to one of your beneficiaries, how would you want the assets divided?
- Is there any reason you would want to control the distribution of assets to one or more of your beneficiaries?
- How does your IRA fit into your estate plan?
The time that you spend gathering information and making certain your wishes are known will help ensure that your estate will be handled in the way you want it to be. It will also be a beneficial way to save your loved ones from having to search for important documents and making difficult decisions during a traumatic time.
