Many people are overwhelmed by the thought of tackling their estate plan. It is an inherently difficult topic to ruminate and discuss because at the center of it all is the idea of death. You are preparing for your inevitable death, and what happens to your life savings and collections when it arrives. That's incredibly hard to get past, and it can drive people away from the estate planning process -- even though it is an incredibly important part of your life.
Estate planning means taking an active role in your family’s future. By getting your affairs in order, and organizing and determining the disbursement of your assets, you’re looking out for your loved ones once you’ve passed on. Your own future, however, is also paramount when it comes to estate planning.
