Death is not something we like to think about, but a bit of pre-planning can save a lot of heartache for those we leave behind. What control do you have over your assets when you pass? It’s an interesting thought that most people don’t like to dwell on, however, with more wealth being created through superannuation funds, it’s a thought that will require action at some stage – and the sooner the better.
It is often said that death is final. However, a grieving family knows only too well that the death of a loved one can trigger events that may drag on for years afterwards, especially when it comes to sorting out the estate of the deceased person. Outlined below are some suggestions that may help reduce the burden on those you leave behind.
The list above covers a lot of the most important things to consider, however, professional advice should be sought to tailor your estate planning arrangements to your unique individual circumstances. If your family situation changes, be sure to seek professional advice to update your estate plan accordingly. Then you can get on with living your life.
