Thinking about YOUR own Legacy and how YOU can make a difference to a loved one or a charity? National Estate Planning Awareness Week, Oct. 15-21, 2018, is a good time to contact an accredited estate planner or estate planning law specialist in your area for advice and guidance on preparing a will or trust.
What is Estate Planning? The simple definition is the act of preparing for the transfer of a person’s wealth and assets after his or her death. Assets, life insurance, pensions, real estate, cars, personal belongings, and debts are all part of one’s estate.
Why Estate Planning? Simply taking the time and effort necessary to plan your estate, you will be able to:
- Take care of your immediate family
- Get your property to beneficiaries quickly
- Plan for incapacity
- Choose executors/trustees for your estate
- Ease the strain on your family
- Help a charitable cause
- Reduce taxes on your estate
- Minimize expenses
Consider your legacy today by giving to your family and charity in the future. If you are interested in including Homes For Our Troops in your estate plan, contact Suzanne Shaheen at [email protected]org.
