September 2019 – Estate Planning Essentials

It is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. Getting the kids to school on time, making it to soccer practice, piano lessons and more. The problem is, life goes by like a blink of an eye and then it’s gone.

No one wants to think about it, but death is inevitable. We all hope for a long fruitful life, but sometimes life has other plans for us that cut our time short. No matter the length of our life, the one thing we want to be sure about is that our families are taken care of when we are no longer here.

Estate planning is often thought of as something we do in our retirement years. Contrary to this belief, your estate planning should not wait for a particular age or level of wealth. Estate planning is important for everyone at every stage of their lives. Whether you have children who need to be looked after, want to protect your assets, or just went through a divorce and need to reassess your life, going through the estate planning process can help ease your mind.

Leaving loved ones behind without any direction or plans can cause unnecessary, and avoidable, stress and financial burden. Creating an estate plan now will ensure that you and your family are protected.
