Estate Planning is for Everyone, Not Just the Wealthy
You don’t need to have millions of dollars in assets to benefit from estate planning. Good estate planning can benefit anyone by giving them more control over distribution of their assets, minimizing loss to probate costs and taxes, and preparing in advance for health care needs. Wills, living wills, advance health care directives, powers of attorney, insurance policies, and accounts with beneficiary designations are estate planning tools that anyone can benefit from and use to leave more for family and loved ones. Many people are also surprised to find they can benefit from sophisticated planning techniques using trusts and business entities even though they don’t consider themselves wealthy.
