Key Elements of Estate Planning

The key elements of good estate planning are:

  • A Will
  • A Trust
  • Health Care Power of Attorney
  • Durable Power of Attorney

Estate Planning: Will or Trust

The purpose of a will or trust is to distribute your valuable assets according to your wishes in a sensitive, humane, and orderly fashion, and in a way that minimizes resentment and jealousy among family members.

Estate Planning: Trust

A trust allows you to transfer property to a trustee to hold, manage, and distribute your estate according to the specifications of the trust agreement. There are many types of trusts, each of which, if properly drafted, provide significant tax and savings benefits. A good non-tax reason for having a trust is to manage property for minor and spendthrift beneficiaries.

Estate Planning: Health Care Power of Attorney

A health-care power of attorney lets you appoint your agent (sometimes known as the patient advocate) to make important medical decisions for you in the event you cannot communicate with your doctor.

Estate Planning: Durable Power of Attorney

The durable power of attorney lets you designate an agent to manage your assets in case you are too sick or otherwise unable to do so yourself.
