Start building your estate plan to protect your interests

Everyone has an estate, no matter how big or small. You may believe that it's unnecessary to protect your estate if it's not very large, but that couldn't be further from the truth. People who have loved ones who they'd like to have become their beneficiaries in the future and those who have children who need guardians will all benefit from estate plans.

Start with a basic estate plan to plan for your beneficiaries

As someone who is just starting to plan for retirement and older age, you may know that it's time to start your estate planning process, too. The basics of estate planning are relatively simple: Get a will, decide if you want to have a trust, and decide on who you want to be responsible for your estate and health care if you can't make your own decisions.

Resigning from a guardianship: Your options

One thing that some people may need to handle is restoring a ward's capacity after a period of time where they had to have a guardian. As a guardian, you'll need to pass off the guardianship responsibilities correctly. Failing to do so can result in legal trouble.

Should you use life insurance policies in estate planning?

Life insurance is something many people opt to have as they begin to age. It's particularly common for people who have spouses and children, because they don't want to leave their loved ones without the money they need following their death.
