Prepare to Prepare
As you get older and your family grows, it’s important to establish financial security for your loved ones in the years to come. The earlier you begin preparations, the less painful the process will be for everyone involved. Unfortunately, realizing that you need to plan your family’s financial future is the easy part: it’s the details that come after that realization that may leave you stressed and in need of direction.
Estate planning is one of the best ways you can ensure there’s a plan for your family to follow after you’ve passed away. However, it requires you to have a good grasp on all your finances—even instruments, like a life insurance policy, that you don’t think about on a regular basis. Typically, when you walk into an attorney’s office to start the estate planning process, you’ll be handed a lengthy intake form that will require you to write down your assets—including bank accounts, retirement plans, securities, and life insurance policies—liabilities—such as outstanding student loans and mortgages— as well as the individuals you would like to include in your will. If just reading that short list sparked a slight feeling of panic, you are not alone. The key to making planning for the future as easy as possible is to collect and organize all your information in advance. Once you put the work into gathering all the information you need, you’ll need a secure place to store it. Jazmine is a tool to do just that.
