Top 10 Estate Planning Mistakes

Ensure That Your Estate Plan Truly Protects Your Family and Assets

Proper estate planning is an investment that will protect your assets, prevent problems, and provide peace of mind for you and for your family. However, estate plans can be riddled with mistakes due to improperly structured or outdated plans.

A poorly constructed estate plan will only create costly confusion, encourage disputes, and make life difficult down the road for your heirs. Antiquated plans can be just as problematic. New marriages, new property, a change to a closely held business, new tax laws, more children and grandchildren, retirement income, new investments – the reasons to review and update your estate plan are endless.
