October 17-23rd is National Estate Planning Awareness Week and Children’s Health wants to help you make the most of it! Ensuring your loved ones are protected and causes you cherish brings peace of mind.
If you’re wondering why you should be thinking about your will, we’re here to answer the most common concerns about making estate plans:
- It’s too early for me to think about my will! We hope you won’t need to use it for many years to come, but it is never too early to start planning ahead. Whether you are eighteen or eighty, having a will can give you peace of mind that your wishes and loved ones are taken care of, no matter what.
- I planned my estate a couple of years ago so I’m set. Have you acquired property? Do you have children? Life changes fast, so it is recommended that you update your will and beneficiaries at least every five years.
- Estate planning is always so expensive. It can be, but the Children’s Health has partnered with a free, online resource that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will in 20 minutes or less. You will also find beneficial tools to help you create a wholistic plan such as a power of attorney.
- What else do I need to know? Open enrollment is a great time to check your beneficiaries on your retirement plan and life insurance are all up to date. When you do this its simple to add a charitable gift as a fixed amount or percentage.
