Estate planning involves not only the planning, preservation and transfer of your financial assets, but also the protection of those assets to help maintain financial security for your loved ones.
It is vital to have a basic estate plan in place regardless of your net worth. It helps to ensure that your family is taken care of according to your wishes, in an orderly way, and that your financial goals are met in the event of your incapacity or death.
It is usually best to start with an inventory of your assets — which can include investments, real estate and insurance policies.
When putting together an estate plan, you’ll want to think about the potential impact of both federal and state taxes.1 Trusts can be structured to serve a variety of purposes, and can reduce your estate and gift taxes while permitting assets to be distributed to your heirs without the cost, delay and publicity of probate court.
