<h2>Understanding How Estate Planning Works</h2>

Understanding How Estate Planning Works

How you choose to allocate your assets is a personal decision, but at Phillips Financial we can help you determine which strategies are advantageous for you and your heirs. Your estate plan may include:

  • Will: A legally binding document that allocates your assets after you pass and names a legal guardian for minors. A will doesn't take effect until you die, and it has to go through probate.
  • Revocable Trust: This legally binding arrangement takes effect immediately. You decide how you want your assets handled, including when your beneficiaries receive their inheritances. You can make changes at any time. You designate a trustee who distributes and manages the trust after you pass. Trusts do not go through probate.
  • Living Will: This document lays out your health care wishes should you become incapacitated.
  • Durable Power of Attorney: The durable power of attorney is the person you appoint to ensure your living will is carried out.
