A well thought out estate plan can – and should – accomplish a wide variety of inter-related goals that do much more than simply create a roadmap for distributing your estate assets after you are gone. The attorneys and staff at Kobrick & Moccia are committed to helping our friends and neighbors in the Rye Brook, New York community create an estate plan that accomplishes all their goals and meets all of their needs. We look forward to the opportunity to help you with your comprehensive estate plan.
A successful estate plan requires a solid foundation; however, it also requires nurturing. Consequently, your estate plan is not something you create and forget about once it is in place. On the contrary, your estate plan needs to be reviewed and updated to reflect changes that occur in your life. Your initial estate plan may be rather simplistic, focusing almost entirely on the distribution of your estate assets in the event of your death; however, you will soon outgrow that plan. Marriage and/or parenthood means you now have a family to protect and provide for in your plan. As a result, your estate plan will need to be updated to include components such as incapacity planning, asset protection, and probate avoidance. You may also want to add a trust into your plan to protect your minor children’s inheritance until they reach the age of majority. As you move into middle age, you should begin merging your retirement plans with your estate plan to ensure that the two plans work in harmony with each other. Long before you reach retirement age, however, you should also consider adding Medicaid planning to your estate plan to ensure that you can afford the high cost of long-term care. Funeral planning along with advance directives should also be included in your overall estate plan if you want your wishes to be honored with regard to end of life medical treatment.
The estate planning attorneys at Kobrick & Moccia would be honored to help you create and update your individualized estate plan to ensure that everything and everyone that matters to you is protected.
