www.SouthwestOrlandoBulletin.com x September 21 - October 5, 2017 x 7 A Penny And A Piggy Bank Importance of Estate Planning by: Kristen M. Jackson / Attorney People talk about it. Experts write about it. Some think it is only for the wealthy. Others believe it is only for the old. So, how do you determine if an estate plan is right for you? First, you need to understand what an estate plan does, what it includes, and what control it gives you to make decisions today for events that happen in the future. An estate plan is a collection of legal documents in which you tell others what to do when you die or if you become incapacitated. For example, an estate plan allows you to name who will receive your assets when you die. An estate plan lets you select the person who will care for you if you become incapacitated. An estate plan lets you appoint a guardian for your minor children if you and your spouse die or are no longer competent to care for them yourselves. Whether you have nothing more than a “penny and a piggy bank” or a lavish estate, without an estate plan, you lose control of what happens after you die or become incapacitated. Without an estate plan, the courts, not you, will control what happens to your assets, you, your minor children, and more. What is Your Estate? Your estate is the sum of all your assets including your home and other real estate; IRAs, certificates of deposits, pension plans and other retirement programs; stocks, stock options, and other securities; bank accounts; furniture, jewelry, cars and other tangible personal property; life insurance proceeds; money owed to you; business interests; and any other item you own that can be assessed with a value. The plan determines when and how to use those assets during your life if you are unable to manage your finances, and, who can use those assets to care for your loved ones when you are gone. What Does an Estate Plan Look Like? Estate plans are customized to fit your individual needs. However, most estate plans include the following documents: 1. Last Will and Testament – A will names a personal representative (also known as an executor) who will manage your estate. A will instructs that personal representative how and to whom to distribute your assets. A will also designates a guardian for your minor children if both you and your spouse die or become incapacitated. 2. Living Trust – A trust allows you to control your assets during your lifetime and instruct how, when, and to who your assets are to be distributed upon your death. When you die without a living trust, your estate is managed and distributed through a court proceeding called probate, which can take up to a year (or even longer) and may cost 3% or more of your estate value. With a living trust, probate is not required and your estate is distributed with minimal delay and cost. A properly drafted trust may also eliminate or diminish estate taxes. 3. Durable Power of Attorney – A durable power of attorney appoints a person to execute agreements, transact business, write checks, and manage your financial and legal affairs. You determine if this person can exercise these powers immediately or only upon your incapacitation. 4. Health Care Surrogate Designation – A designated surrogate makes informed health care decisions regarding medical treatment for you if you become unable to make those decisions. 5. Living Will – A living will instructs medical personnel that life-prolonging procedures are to be withheld or withdrawn if you have a terminal or end-stage condition or are in a persistent vegetative state. 6. Declaration of Pre-need Guardianship – A declaration of pre-need guardianship tells the court who to appoint as guardian of you and your assets if you become severely mentally or physically disabled during your life. So, remember, whether you have but a “penny and a piggy bank” or a lavish estate, estate planning is important to you and your family’s well-being. Depending on your individual needs, your estate plan may require additional documents such as a life estate deed, supplemental needs trust, qualified income trust, or an irrevocable life insurance trust. An experienced estate planning attorney can help you determine which documents you will need in your estate plan.
