What Does Your Estate Plan Look Like?

If you don't know yet what your estate plan looks like, I can help. I'm attorney Carl Knickerbocker. We all know that no one wants to think of the sad time when they will no longer be here with loved ones or when they will need more care and may have to move from their current home. But these considerations are real-life eventualities as people grow into old age and become the senior members of their families.

Thoughtful and proactive planning for your future can be one of the best gifts you can give your family. With estate plans in place, you won't have to worry what will happen if something happens to you. Your family will already know your wishes and will have an action plan in place to execute if need be.

What Should I Include in My Estate Plan?

Several documents will make your estate plan complete, including:

  • Wills and trusts — What do you want to happen to your property and possessions once you pass on?
  • Health care directive or living will — How do you feel about having life-saving measures taken if your heart stops? What medical decisions do you want a say in if you can no longer speak for yourself? How do you define quality of life?
  • Health care power of attorney — What will happen if you become incapacitated? Who will you trust to make the right, and often tough, medical decisions for you? Who will decide which medical providers or care facilities you can be sent to? Who do you want to be able to access your medical records?
  • Financial power of attorney — Who would you entrust to handle your financial affairs? Who will be able to pay your bills, taxes and insurance? Who will manage your bank accounts, investments and real estate interests?

As difficult as it may be to think about these questions, it is better to have answers while you can still make these decisions for yourself. Visit my FAQs page to learn more about wills and trusts.
