Estate Planning Checklist

 

...Consider holding your property in a living trust so your survivors won't have to go through probate court.

 

Make health care directives to ensure that your wishes regarding medical decisions will be honored, should you be unable to make the decisions yourself.

 

Appoint a financial power of attorney to give a trusted person the authority to handle your finances and property should you become unable to do so.

 

Protect your child's property by naming an adult to manage any money and property your minor child may inherit from you.

 

Name a beneficiary for bank accounts and retirement plans to make the accounts automatically payable on death and skip the probate process...
