All You Need to Know About Estate Planning

December 8, 2021by idoscc0

Even if estate planning isn’t at the top of your to-do list while preparing for the future, it should be. Estate planning is very significant for communities because of the wealth accumulation and generational wealth-building potential. The courts will decide what happens to your money if you don’t, which will require the assistance of professional accounting companies.

Estate planning dictates the distribution of your assets after your death. Here’s all you need to know about estate planning:

1.      Generational Wealth-Building

Having a well-thought-out post-death financial strategy is essential to developing a legacy. Estate planning is crucial for communities of colour who suffer systematic barriers to generating wealth. You must have an estate plan in place so that you may efficiently pass on your assets to your heirs.

2.      During-Life Utilization of Estate Planning

Estate planning often includes considerations for the possibility of a loved one’s handicap. People don’t think about what would happen if they almost died. Your family members will not be burdened by having to make this decision if you become incapacitated in some way because of a living will.

Estate planning is crucial in case you are in the hospital for an extended period

There are times when it is beneficial to have someone else handle your finances for you if you are in the hospital for an extended period and can’t access your bank account. If you cannot make medical decisions for yourself, you can designate a healthcare proxy to make those decisions on your behalf.

3.      Early Start and Plan Update

Even if you’re not aware of it, you may already be preparing your estate. Children tend to put their parents down and neglect to update them when they get married or have kids in their younger days.

A family member would have to go to court if you opened a bank account and didn’t have a beneficiary or a power of attorney in place so that they could make financial decisions for you in the event of your death. Estate planning is particularly more critical if you are a single person. Single persons should complete a power of attorney document to designate who has access to their finances and can act on their behalf if they cannot do so themselves.

If you’re married or have children, you’re protected by the law. In most states, your spouse gets everything. If you’re unmarried and have no children, your parents will inherit everything.

4.      Estate Planning for All

You need to know that estate planning is for everyone to begin with. Low-income individuals require estate planning more than those with more money. Wealthy people can get funds from the state while working out their family’s inheritance arrangements, but the process can be complicated for those who don’t have the resources.

Everything from deciding where your money should go to selecting a guardian for minor children is covered when it comes to estate planning.
