As many of you prepare for the new year and begin thinking of resolutions, you will all think about the FUTURE.
The future consists of a second from now, a minute, a year, even ten years.
Many of you will have financial and health goals- in those goals, it is important to remember that part of planning for the future is planning for unexpected occurrences and even death.
Is your family prepared if something happens to you or someone you love? What will happen to your home? Your children? Where will you be buried? Or will you be cremated? Would there be a memorial service in a church, temple, synagogue, or home? The holidays are a time for celebration, love and joy.
Enter the new year knowing you are better prepared- not for yourself, but for your child(ren) and family- create an estate plan. Find out more about estate planning and how to prepare your family for the future by contacting our office to schedule a consultation.
