Many people find estate planning to be an uncomfortable topic, but when someone passes without an estate plan, the courts decide what happens to the person’s assets. Family disputes that end up in court can be very expensive. Making an estate plan can bypass expensive court proceedings and ensure that assets go to intended beneficiaries.
According to a recent survey from senior living referral service Caring.com, only about 33% of Americans have a plan in place, meaning 67% are leaving decisions to others, perhaps the state.
As explained on the website, legal documents in an estate plan include a will that delineates a person’s instructions about the distribution of assets upon their death and a medical directive that expresses the person’s wishes about the measures to be taken if they become terminally ill or unconscious.
The estate plan provides a way for a person to give a power of attorney to an individual to legally act on their behalf and to name a trustee who will administer assets to beneficiaries.
