Estate planning is never a fun topic to talk about, but it’s extremely important in managing our money and assets well after we pass on. Without estate planning, the government is put in charge and things can get much more difficult for friends and family.
A common thought is that estate planning is only for the rich and successful. But that isn’t true at all. Everyone has some kind of estate, whether that’s owning a 2001 Toyota Corolla, multiple real estate properties, a treasured family heirloom, or having money in investment or retirement accounts.
