Life is full of uncertainties, but estate planning gives you control of your life and legacy. When you reach the end of your life, it is important you have a plan for medical care and a plan for what happens to your wealth. Estate planning empowers you to make that plan so you maintain autonomy– even when you can no longer speak for yourself.
Through the use of legal tools like wills, trusts, powers of attorney and more, you determine who will be in charge of decisions if you no longer can act on your own and you determine what will happen to assets when you are gone. From taking care of loved ones to providing for a charity, the decision is in your hands.
Your goals are your unique to your situation, so your estate plan must be customized to you. Anderson, Dorn & Rader, Ltd. will empower you to take control no matter what the future brings.
