While nobody wants to think about death or disability, establishing an estate plan is the most important step you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. Proper estate planning puts you in charge of who will inherit your possessions. It also spares your loved ones from the expense, delay, and frustration associated with managing your affairs when you pass away or if you become disabled.
When Should You Start An Estate Plan?
You need to start the process of estate planning now, especially if you have a house, a mortgage, children, and other assets. You need to have a plan in place.
