PROTECT WHAT MATTERS MOST
Estate plans not only protect your assets but you and your family as well. If created properly, your estate plan should include an advance healthcare directive, powers of attorney, trusts, and a will. Powers of attorney and an advance healthcare directive state your medical wishes in regards to certain types of illnesses.
Wills allow you to appoint guardians, select an executor, and state which of your property will go to selected beneficiaries/heirs.
Depending on the types of trust you choose, they may protect your assets during your lifetime and still allow you to manage the items or transfer the assets out of your name. With these types of trusts, you will no longer be able to manage the assets once the trust is executed.
