“A fate worse than death….” We’ve all heard this saying before, and when it comes to planning for your future and the future well being of your loved ones, the saying often holds true.
For families with a special needs dependent child or adult, few things in life are “normal” or “routine.” And when it comes to estate planning for these families, the rule stays the same.
For many people, the decision to purchase life insurance is somewhat of a given. You’re going to pass away one day, right? So why not leave a pot of cash for those you leave behind?
As estate planners, most of our clients come to us seeking guidance as they plan for the end of their lives, focusing on how they are going to take care of those people and things they care about the most when they are gone. This is certainly a necessary endeavor, but planning for our timely or untimely deaths is only a part of comprehensive estate planning.
