FAQ: Estate Planning
Question #1: What is a will?
A: A will is a legal document that specifies how your property should be distributed when you pass away. You can modify or revoke your will after it has been included in your estate plan.
Question #2: What is a trust?
A: A trust allows you to transfer property to another person who will then hold and distribute it to your beneficiaries under the terms of the trust.
Question #3: What happens if I die without making a will?
A: If you pass away without a signed will,then your estate will have to enter probate and your assets and property will end up being distributed by the state. This means your wishes will not be considered if you don’t have a valid will at the time of your death.
