Including advance health care directives in your estate plan

Most people use the terms “will” and “estate plan” interchangeably, but a will is just one of the important documents included in a comprehensive estate plan. As the Baby Boomer generation ages and nears retirement, there has been a growing awareness about planning for medical care and making important medical decisions near the end of life.

Questions to get your estate planning journey started

We frequently write about how important it is to create an estate plan. Without an estate plan, no one will be sure how you want to have your property distributed once you have passed away. If you care for grandchildren or other minors, no one will know who you would prefer to name as guardian in the event of your incapacitation or death. And when it comes to end-of-life care, no one will be sure of your wishes if you fail to draft an estate plan.

Now that we’re more than a week into 2014, it is time to revisit any New Year’s resolutions you may have made. Before the ball dropped on December 31st, did you resolve to finally attend to estate planning in the coming year? If so, the unusually cold winter we’re having so far should be plenty of inspiration to stay indoors and get down to business.

What estate planning and end-of-life documents do I need?

It is commonly believed that estate planning and all the related documents it requires are things that only very wealthy retirees need. This is not true. As a recent article in Forbes points out, we all need an estate plan, regardless of our net worth or age.
