What Types of Advanced Planning Should Young People Due to Create a Secure Future?
Creating a secure future for yourself and your children involves addressing the certainties and the uncertainties of life. Some of the different types of planning that Eghrari Law Firm can assist you with include:
- Creating a last will and testament. Even if you don’t have a lot of assets yet, and even if you are young, you should have a will in place so you do not cause family strife if something unexpected happens. For young parents, a will also provides the opportunity to determine who should care for children and how children should be provided for if parents pass away.
- Creating a retirement savings plan. There are different types of tax-advantaged accounts that allow you to maximize your retirement savings and invest smartly to ensure you have the money you need to enjoy your golden years.
- Creating a college saving plan for your children. An experienced financial planning lawyer can help you to determine the financial needs associated with educating your children and can provide you with advice on your best options for achieving the goal of providing your kids with a solid education.
- Creating a plan in case of incapacity or illness. If you become sick, injured, or disabled, you want to ensure you have a living will and a healthcare power of attorney so it is clear what medical treatment you should undergo. A durable power of attorney also allows you to determine who will act on your behalf when you can no longer make decisions.
- Securing insurance coverage. Appropriate policies may include health insurance, life insurance, long-term care insurance, and disability insurance- among other types of coverage.
These are just some of the common things young families frequently include in their plan for the future. There are other steps you can take including creating and funding trusts and engaging in Medicaid and long-term care planning.
