Welcome back. Our attorney in Raleigh NC is here to talk more with you about your estate plan and why it's good to consider having it updated before the end of this year. With October in full swing already, the end of December will be here before we know it. Holidays are a busy time so making sure your estate plan is updated now, might be easier than waiting until the last month of the year.
- Healthcare - Do you have a healthcare power of attorney? Do you need to change the current appointed HPOA? If so, do this as quickly as possible, as you never know what might happen.
- Tax Laws - It's difficult to keep up with the constant changing of tax laws. Because your estate is affected by the changes, be sure to follow up with your attorney in Raleigh NC any time you're notified of a change.
- Trusts - Sometimes, we decide that are children are better off receiving their inheritance in smaller sums, instead of all at once. If you'd rather put stipulations or restrictions that lean toward living expenses, health or education only, you could do this at any point.
Remember, your estate plan is an important part of life. It's the only way you can make sure things are in order and distributed properly after your passing. Making sure you update your estate plan regularly is important to consider. As we stated in our previous blog post, our attorney in Raleigh suggests doing so at least once a year to ensure you don't leave a life change out of estate planning accidentally. If you missed that blog, be sure to visit back with it, here for more information.
