The Most Complete Platform to Create & Maintain Estate & Inheritance Plan you can offer your clients
What is an estate plan?
A set of legal documents which outline how an individual’s assets will be managed if they become incapacitated (i.e., unable to manage your own assets after an illness or injury) or pass away. Most Estate Plans consist of a Will or Trust, a Durable Power of Attorney, a Healthcare Power of Attorney, and a guardianship designation if you have minor children.
Why Do Your Client’s Need One?
Without a plan, a court may decide on the distribution of assets. Client’s estates can be tied up in lengthy and expensive probate processes with no access to funds for months or years. Probate also includes a review of assets to determine the inheritors. In some states, Probate may be expedited if the value of the estate is below a certain level. Either way, having a legally-valid estate plan can help your client’s benefactors avoid this frustration.
Why should you offer this service to your clients?
