Understanding The Different Types Of Estate Planning Tools
In general, people tend to think of a will when they hear the term estate planning. However, estate planning involves much more than drafting a will that designates to whom your property will go after your death. Estate planning tools, such as an advance directive, also known as a health care directive, or a power of attorney, can be used to name representatives to make health care or financial decisions in the event you become seriously ill or incapacitated.
A last will and testament is not the only estate planning tool you can use to distribute your property. Various trust instruments can designate beneficiaries of your assets during your life and after your death. Learn more about the types of trusts by scheduling a consultation at our Medford law office.
