Close to retirement? Do not forget about estate planning

As you get older, you are often reminded of the importance of planning for your retirement. Retirement planning is important and is one thing that you can do to make life easier for yourself in the future. 

Retirement planning is not the only type of planning you need to do. Estate planning is another important step to take when planning for your future. Many of us fail to think about what will happen after we pass away. Having an estate plan in place can make life much easier for your loved ones. 

Estate planning can address a variety of issues, and your plan can be as simple or complex as it needs to be. You should create an estate plan if you do not already have one or update your estate plan to make sure everything is accurate and up-to-date. 

Your estate plan needs to include a will. This document will appoint someone as the executor of your estate who will make sure your estate is handled according to your wishes. In addition to having a will, you may want to consider setting up a power of attorney, trust and a health care proxy. 

Your estate plan can also address how your assets will be distributed after you pass away. It is important to determine your beneficiaries and if there will be any terms to receive their inheritance. 

Every person's estate planning needs are different and depend on several different factors. Working with an attorney can help you address your concerns and make sure your estate plan will make sure your wishes are known and that your estate is distributed according to your wishes.
