The Essentials of Estate Planning

When:  Tuesday, August 20

                 7:00 - 8:00 PM

 

Don't Wait to Make a Plan

 

Believe it or not, you have an estate. In fact, everyone does. Your estate is comprised of everything you own— your car, home, other real estate, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, furniture, and personal possessions. No matter how large or how small, everyone has an estate and needs to make a plan for it. 

 

When you die, you probably want to have a say as to how all that you have worked so hard for are given to the people or organizations you care most about. That is estate planning—making a plan in advance and naming whom you want to receive the things you own after you die.

However, good estate planning is much more than that. It should also:

• Impart more than just money – your values, life experiences, family stories;

• Make a plan for your children;

• Make a plan for not just your death, but also your possible incapacity; and

• Change with you as your life changes.

 

Join Kristy Hoad, estate planning attorney with offices in Seattle and Bellevue, and learn how comprehensive planning will enable you to have peace of mind knowing that your family is taken care of, and that there is no question about what your wishes are.
