Estate Planning Errors to Avoid
When it comes to estate planning matters, our lawyers have seen it all. Here are three of the biggest estate planning errors that we commonly see people make:
- Not Planning at All: Although it may be unpleasant to think about, you need to have a thoughtful plan in place for when you die. Estate planning is one of the most important things you can do to make sure your affairs will be handled properly when you are gone.
- Forgetting to Update the Will: If you have recently experienced any major life events, such as divorce, the death of a family member, or purchasing new property, then you need to update your will to make sure the right beneficiaries receive your assets when you die.
- Forgetting to Transfer Life Insurance Policies: Although you might have life insurance, it can take months for your family to obtain payment after you die. This is why you need to set up a life insurance trust to make sure your loved ones receive the proceeds as soon as possible.
