What is estate planning and why is it important?
Your estate includes everything you own including real estate, vehicles, money in your bank account, furniture, investments, shares, life insurance, even personal possessions.
It is important to decide what will happen to your assets when you die and plan for who will manage your financial and health care decisions if you were incapable of making those decisions yourself.
Estate planning is making sure you have a plan for what will happen to, not only your “estate” when you die but also how you will be cared for medically and financially if you are unable to make your own decisions in the future.
The key documents in establishing your estate plan include your Will, Enduring Power of Attorney and Advance Care Directives.
