Whatever your stage in life, it is a good idea to think about and plan for how your affairs will be handled. National Estate and Gift Planning Awareness Week is Oct. 18-24, making this a great time to look ahead.
Estate planning is one of the most overlooked areas of personal financial management. It’s been estimated that more than 120 million Americans do not have proper estate plans to protect themselves or their families in the event of sickness, accidents or untimely death – circumstances that can cause many families unnecessary expense and financial hardship. Proper planning can help avoid these unintended consequences.
A few simple steps today can give you peace of mind tomorrow by ensuring that you and your loved ones are well protected. Your estate plan can also be used to support charitable causes that matter most to you, such as the quality programs and educational services offered to our community by this station.
