Questions On Estate Planning

Have your client make decisions about leaving their legacy.

*Whats the primary goal for your estate–avoiding taxes? Providing for your family?

Charitable giving? Who are the principal beneficiaries of your estate?

*When was your will last updated? Do you have a living will? Do you have durable power

of attorney in the event you cant make decision?

*Do you own life insurance? Do you think you have enough? Why? Do you own the policy

directly or is it in a trust?

*If you have a business, are your key employees adequately provided for? Do you have a

succession plan?
