  2. Estate Planning – Power of Attorney Ever wondered what will happen to your family if anything happens to you? Ever thought about the hardships they would have to go through in such a case? Estate planning can help lower that burden. I am not saying that this certainly will happen, but being prepared is how you can protect your family. How you can do that? For that, you need to start from the basics of Estate Planning. What is Estate Planning? Estate Planning is the process of designation that will have the authority over your assets and handle your responsibilities after your death or incapacitation. Estate Planning will also provide your beneficiaries to receive these things in the most cost-effective way possible. The key question to ask yourself while Estate Planning is – “How do you want to distribute your assets and among whom when you die or become incapacitated?”

  3. Estate Planning sure is very crucial for everyone, irrespective of the fact that they are rich or not. This secures your family’s future and enables them with the authority to make important decisions even when you are disabled or not around. 12 steps to the basics of Estate Planning Make a will: Take a professional’s help and make a will. In a will you state how you want to distribute your property. Also, assign a guardian for your young children in case anything happens to you or the other parent. Consider Trust services: Trust services provide solutions to your various problems linked with wealth management or child management.

  4. Health care directives are your best friend in case of medical incapacitation. It is like a living will, you provide a power of attorney to a person who can take decisions in your place if you are medically not-in-condition to do so. Assign a financial power of attorney:A financial power of attorney, also called agent or attorney-in-fact is a person who you assign the power to handle your finances if you become disabled in such a sense in which you are no longer able to take any such decisions. Secure your children’s property:Assign an adult person as guardian to manage the money until your minor child becomes of age to inherit your property. You can choose any person you trust as a guardian.

  5. Fill beneficiary forms: Filing beneficiary forms make your bank accounts and retirement plans “payable on death” automatically and allow the funds to skip the probate process. Life insurance is also considerable:Whether you own a house or property or any other asset, having life insurance can protect your family after your death. Gain knowledge about the Estate taxes in your country or states as it may vary according to the region. Funeral expense coverage is important:Make your accounts in banks and deposit funds as ‘payable-at-death’ to pay for your funeral and related expenses. Make your final arrangements:Make your end-of-life wishes known to your family and relatives related to organ donation or disposition of your body.

  6. Protect your business: If you own a business and you are the sole owner you should consider a Succession Plan. If you have other partners you must have a Buyout Agreement. Carefully store your documents: Documents such as your will, trusts, insurance plans, etc. are sensitive documents that should be protected and stored ina secure places like a vault or bank locker. Estate planning as discussed above through these 12 points sure is very important for all. If you want to protect your family even after your death or incapacitation you must consider Estate Planning.
