Legacy & Trust
Planning For the Inevitable
Legacy and trust planning should take several issues into consideration; obviously, you and your family but also your financial status, your health and your wishes and goals for the future should it arrive without you.
At the bare minimum, everybody should possess a Will (in the event of death) and an arrangement for granting Powers of Attorney for medical care and finances (in the event of incapacity). Many individuals will derive additional benefit from trust planning.
For many individuals, estate or legacy planning is undertaken to make sure that they have a last will and testament in place. Essentially, this stipulates how your assets will pass or be distributed upon your death.
If you die without a will being in place – eg “intestate” – in most jurisdictions, your assets will pass on to your spouse or children or even your parents in the event that you are not married.
Most people would find this an undesirable outcome if only for the disagreements and feuding it could cause among surviving family members so they have a will drawn up.
