Estate plans are like a garden: no matter how simple or how elaborate - how small or how large - you start a successful garden by planting the first seed.
October 17-23 is National Estate Planning Awareness Week and a great time to get gardening. Plant the first seed by getting organized and learning more about your options. Then, watch your garden grow.
By preparing an estate plan, you are safeguarding more than just matters of finances and inheritance, you are also guiding future health decisions, providing for spouses, partners, children, pets and other loved ones and creating your legacy. No matter your age or income, a few simple steps today will give you peace of mind tomorrow by ensuring you and your loved ones are well-protected. Throughout the month of October, the ETV Endowment is offering resources for planting that first seed.
