Book & CD-ROM. Planning your estate is a long, complicated process that requires much time and effort. The process of organising your records for estate planning is equally time consuming and complex. Hiring an attorney to assist you may cost more than you are willing to spend. With the help of this guide, you can not only take charge of your estate planning documentation, but also save time, money, and effort. In this book, you will learn how to find an organisational system that works for you, where to look for records, what to record, who to tell, where to keep records, and how often to update your records. You will also find information on creating a will or a living will, setting up a trust, assigning power of attorney, and filling out health care directives. Additionally, you will learn about the documents that should be included in your estate plan, such as insurance policies, Social Security cards, birth certificates of minor children, stock brokerage statements, credit card numbers and statements, certificates of deposit, real estate deeds, mortgage statements, retirement account savings, non-retirement account savings, and current bank statements.
The CD-ROM is filled with sample documents and worksheets, as well as a checklist of often overlooked information, including any medications you take, where you worked, where your savings and checking accounts are located, where your car title is located, what your funeral plans or wishes are, and who should receive what. This guide will help you to prepare your documents and record your final instructions and wishes. By using the information provided in this book you will save money you might otherwise have spent on legal and accounting fees. In addition, you will save your family the frustration of searching for these documents if something should ever happen to you. This book, written in an easy-to-understand language, will walk you through the process of organising your records and make the process much easier for you and your family.
