Everyone should have an up-to-date
Last Will and Testament or Living Trust

Everyone should have an up-to-date Last Will and Testament or Living Trust to ensure that your belongings go to your desired beneficiaries. Many people believe that your belongings pass regardless of whether you have a will or trust, but this is not the case in today’s age. A person dying intestate (without a will or trust) is at risk of having their estate incur significant taxes and even pass to beneficiaries that were never intended.

Last will and testament

Many people accumulate wealth in their retirement accounts and own assets that, when added together, have value. A properly drafted trust, a legal arrangement drafted by an attorney that transfers property to a trustee, can be a critical tool in estate planning. It can help you think about the type of legacy you want to leave.
