Estate Planning Documents To Consider

Your estate plan can include a variety of documents depending on your personal needs, including:

  • A last will and testament
  • A living will
  • A trust
  • Power of attorney
  • Conservatorship
  • Guardianship

What exactly does your will do? Your will, also referred to as your last will and testament, is a document that allows you to transfer your property and assets to a friend, loved one or organization that you designate in your will. At the time of your death, and after your will has been admitted to probate, your will shall go into effect. Most people also designate their personal representative, also referred to as an executor, in their will. An executor is someone who is permitted to carry out specific instructions or wishes that you designate in your will. You may also name them as a guardian to your minor children, if applicable.
