The Importance of a Proper Estate Plan

A few weeks ago, the death of musical icon Prince sent shockwaves through fans around the world. But perhaps what was more shocking than his untimely death, was the revelation that he passed away without a will or proper estate plan in place.

Creating an estate plan isn’t something you do for your own benefit — it’s for the loved ones left behind.

And while most of us don’t have a net worth anywhere close to the estimated $300 million that Prince had, that doesn’t mean that our estate planning needs are any less important.

But where do you start? Today, we’re discussing what you need to structure in your life to ensure you have a solid estate plan in place.
