_dsc0230Why Estate Planning is So Important

The crush of day-to-day activities in caring for your family may make estate planning seem like one of those things you know you need to do but will get to later. Think again before putting it off for too long. :

  • If you were to suddenly become unable to care for your child with special needs, who could step in and care for your child the way you do?
  • If your savings had to be spent on your own sudden illness, how would that affect the long-term financial well-being of your child?
  • What if you weren’t able to prevent someone from naming your child as a beneficiary of an investment (rather than your child’s special needs trust), potentially disqualifying your child from government benefits?

The steps you take for estate planning will help you find answers to the question “Who will take care of my child when I can’t?”
