Setting your heirs up for success

When individuals consider their estate plan and the possibility of leaving an inheritance to their loved ones, they typically have many questions. Most often people wonder what they should leave to whom. For individuals with substantial estates, the concerns become even more complex. How much should be left to children? A spouse? Should your assets be divided equally or equitably among your loved ones? Even though these questions represent a significant amount of concern, none should outweigh an individual's concern for how their heirs will handle the inheritance once it's received.

When developing an estate plan and reflecting back on our lives, many of us would like to know that the fruits of our labor are going toward making a better life for our loved ones. Even with the most well-constructed estate plan, leaving an inheritance to our loved ones is only the beginning of ensuring that better life. In order to see our final wishes be carried out, we must know that our loved ones are doing everything in their power to make sure their inheritance works for them.

Leaving a legacy to our loved ones is only the beginning of ensuring their financial future. To make sure our loved ones are well taken care of long after we are gone, it may be beneficial to suggest that heirs meet and speak with an attorney. Discussing an inheritance, what to do with it, how to protect it and how to make it last may be a crucial step in securing that legacy.

Individuals considering their estate plan, including inheritances would benefit by speaking to their attorney about how to ensure their loved ones have long-lasting financial security. Leaving your loved ones a gift after you're gone is a beautiful gesture, however helping them protect it for their lifetime is even more important.
