You may wonder just how estate planning could be a gift worth giving. You may also be asking yourself “Why start now?” It’s January for crying out loud!
Well, we are exactly ONE month away from Valentine’s Day, and with a little planning, you can show you care in a way that REALLY matters!
Valentine’s Day is a time when we think about those we love. As you, or those around you, make special plans this year, remember that sometimes it is the less glamorous gesture that lets someone know how much you really care. Don’t get me wrong, keep the chocolate and flowers as part of your Valentine’s plan! In addition, however, you may want to ask yourself… Would this be a good time to time to review, or create an Estate Plan?
A Demonstration of True Love
It’s a heart-felt demonstration to a spouse, an adult child, significant loved one, or family member, of just how much you care about their well-being. More than just providing for them, a clear estate plan and advanced medical directive makes their life much easier, should the unthinkable occur.
Valentine’s Day can also provide a wonderful opportunity for a discussion about some of the tougher issues with aging parents. And talks about health care decisions can be a good lead-in for some of the heavier financial topics.
