Making Our Seniors Matter Brampton The Gift of Estate Planning

December 2015

By: Kate M. Saldanha

As the holiday season approaches, we often think about our loved ones and giving back. By making an estate plan and organizing your affairs, you can give your loved ones a final gift by making it as easy as possible for your Executor to administer your estate after your death. Having a Will in place ensures that legal authority to do things on your behalf flows as smoothly as possible to your Executor who will be in charge of your estate. You can help your Executor by keeping information about your money, Investments, insurance, property, and debt in one place and telling your Executor where to find that information. Your Executor will need a lot of information about you; having all of this information in one place makes the Executor’s job easier. It is often a difficult and emotional time when a loved one has passed away but nevertheless an Executor must start making decisions and acting on behalf of the estate right away. Creating a well thought out estate plan, giving clear instructions in a properly drafted Will, and organizing information about your assets in a location you share with the Executor is a wonderful final gift to your Executor and loved ones.
