What type of legacy would you like to leave? Legacy planning is about so much more than just money. Simply stated, a legacy plan ensures that what you want to happen will happen at the time of your passing. However, because the subject of legacy is a complex and emotional topic, many families overlook planning before it is too late. If this topic is not discussed before a loved one dies, it could place your family in a difficult position of making decisions and deciding details when family members are the most emotionally fragile.
Having a plan in place reduces this stress and the red tape that goes along with losing a loved one. Without a good plan, the government may be in a position of dividing your assets between members of your family, and often they may not make the same decisions you would. Also, without a suitable plan, your family may be giving up a substantial portion of their inheritance to taxes, causing significant financial burden during a very emotionally devastating time.
