Fall is often the time to clean things up after a busy summer. Painting, remodeling, and cleaning out the garage are popular fall activities. Starting now allows you to get the projects completed before the holidays.
Fall is also a great time to deal with that estate planning project you’ve been putting off. It is one of those messes that you don’t see around your house, but is lingering in the back of your mind telling you, “I really need to get that done.”
When choosing what projects to tackle this fall, consider moving estate planning up on the list. Whether you need to create an estate plan, or simply bring it up to date, it is an important task. You should not procrastinate. You never know when an accident or illness will make your estate plan a critical necessity for you and your family. If your family needs to deal with your assets, or have the power they need to help with medical decisions, no one’s going to care what color you painted the den, or that your garage is immaculate.
Commit to getting your estate plan in place, or up-to-date, this fall so that your family can effectively do the things they will need to do if you need help. Don’t let your outdated, or nonexistent, plan be an additional burden to deal with when something bad happens to you. It won’t take that much time, and you will have the peace of mind in knowing that the most important project was completed first while you clean out the garage or paint the den.
