If this is your first foray into the estate planning world, it can be difficult to know where to start and what documents are essential to crafting a comprehensive and effective estate plan. While there are certainly a variety of planning options available to suit each and every family’s needs, a basic estate plan needs five things:

  1. Will,
  2. Revocable Trust,
  3. Living Will,
  4. Power of Attorney, and
  5. Healthcare Surrogate.

Below I will walk you through these five basic documents and explain the role each plays in protecting your assets and securing your financial legacy.
