Leaving a Legacy

Most of us would rather avoid thinking about the possibility of health issues, accidents, other problems that might happen, or even death. So proactively preparing for these things is easy to postpone. However, a little bit of time spent planning can save you and/or your loved ones a lot of pain and suffering.

Having your files and household records organized is the first step. The next step is planning your estate, and organizing all the information so that everything is in order. No matter how simple a life you lead, it’s can be surprising how many details there can be. This is a financial goal that will provide peace of mind for you in knowing your wishes are carried out, and one that loved ones will much appreciate.

  • Gather together as many important documents as you can, and consider keeping them in a locked fireproof file box or safe deposit box.
  • Share this document with those who will need it.
