Is Your Estate Plan Collecting Dust? IT’S PROBABLY TIME FOR A CHECKUP

When is the last time you took a look at your estate plan documents? If you are like most of us, it was probably right after

estate plans much faster than we think. This is especially true for clients with living trusts. A huge mistake I witness in my practice is clients failing to keep up with proper titling of their assets and updating beneficiary designations. You can have the most sophisticated trust in the world, and it will not be worth the paper it is printed on if it is not properly funded. If it has been more than three years since you executed or amended your estate plan then it is time to dust it off and make sure that it

is still the best possible plan for you and your family given your current circumstances. If you are one of my clients, it’s easy! I offer a free checkup consultation once every five years after you put your plan in place. So if you haven’t come in to see me yet, give me a call and set up your appointment. We will go over your existing documents, account titling, beneficiary designations, and any life changes affecting your family and business since we last talked. Remember, over time your family situations will change, assets will grow, and estate planning laws and techniques will morph. Make sure your plan stays up to date so that it works when your family really needs it. DO YOU NEED HELP REVIEWING YOUR ESTATE PLAN?

But here is the deal: During those 20 years your life changes dramatically. You have more kids, you buy a bigger house, you roll over the 401(k), you switch insurance polices, the kids

go to college, and you buy a smaller house. You get the picture. We start to outgrow our
