Like a seatbelt, a solid estate plan can protect your family from forces beyond your control.
When you get in your vehicle, do you take a moment to buckle your seatbelt? Yes! Do you wait until your car’s spinning out of control? No! Do you skip the seatbelt because you don’t drive a fancy car or drive alone? No! You know that unless you have super hero reflexes, you won’t have enough time to buckle up before impact. So you buckle up.
Like a seatbelt, a solid estate plan reduces the negative impact of catastrophic events on you and your family. For example, if you suffer from dementia and your mental state deteriorates to the point where you can longer manage your own affairs, how will your family take care of your medical and financial needs? If you “buckle up” sooner than later, a Durable Power of Attorney may be the answer, avoiding the high costs of Guardianship proceedings, confusion and undue heartache. If you wait too long, it may be too late to put plans in place and you and your family will likely face confusion, financial hardship and family drama. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Start your estate planning today, before that family emergency hits you. With your peace of mind plan in place, you can enjoy the ride.
