Estate Planning—Not Just for the Rich and Famous

Estate Planning

Ask yourself this question: Do you own something of value that you wish to pass on to someone one day? If you answered “yes,” regardless of your income or assets, you and your heirs will likely benefit from some basic estate planning.

Do I Need a Will?  

A will, the cornerstone of any good estate plan, is a document that allows you to clearly spell out who is to receive your personal property upon your passing. Leaving this duty to your children, a spouse or the courts after you’re gone means that your wishes may not be fulfilled. Depending upon the complexity of your situation, you may also benefit from legal, financial and tax advice as well.

Review Beneficiary Designation

One critical piece of planning includes making sure you successfully transfer your assets to your designated beneficiaries. Changes in your family situation, which may include a marriage, divorce or birth/adoption of a child, make the regular review of your beneficiary designations a necessity. Knowing that your assets will go to the intended loved ones can bring you greater peace of mind.

Consider Life Insurance

Life insurance can be a crucial component of sound estate planning, especially if you have dependents. It can be a good idea to estimate what it would cost to pay off your debts, such as mortgages, car loans, or credit card debt, or to send a child to college.

Consult a Financial Professional

Given the many components of a proper estate plan, making sure you have all the pieces in place may seem like a daunting task. The qualified CFS* Financial Advisors at NASA FCU can help ensure that your financial assets are positioned in a way that is consistent with your current needs, risk tolerance and long-term goals.
