For your estate plan to be successful it needs to be an ongoing venture that is continuously reviewed and updated to reflect changes that occur in your life. Your initial estate plan may focus entirely on creating a plan for the distribution of your estate assets in the event of your death; however, you will soon outgrow that plan. You may, for instance, gain a spouse and/or become a parent, meaning you now have a family to protect and provide for in your plan. The inclusion of components such as incapacity planning and probate avoidance are likely at this point. You may also want to add a trust into your plan to protect your minor children’s inheritance until they reach the age of majority. With the growth of your estate assets, you may need to consider asset protection techniques and begin merging your retirement plans with your estate plans to ensure that the two plans work in harmony with each other. Finally, as you near retirement age, Medicaid planning and funeral planning will likely be included in your comprehensive estate plan along with advanced directives if you want your wishes to be honored with regard to end of life medical treatment. The estate planning team at Amen, Gantner & Capriano, Your Estate Matters, LLC would be honored to be your choice to help you create an estate plan that achieves all your unique estate planning needs and goals.
