Protect your disabled child with a special needs trust

While it is important for everyone to create an estate plan as they grow older, doing so is particularly important for you if you have a disabled or special needs child who will require considerable care in your absence. Providing lifelong care for your disabled child can cost millions, and one effective method of making sure your child has access to what he or she needs involves creating what is known as a special needs trust.

When should an individual revisit an estate plan?

Sadly, many Arizonans view estate planning as a burdensome, depressing endeavor that is better left for later. However, estate planning has considerable significance. After all, the terms laid out in an estate plan, or the lack of an estate plan, will dictate how one's estate is distributed, which may or may not be in line with the deceased individual's wishes. This means that loved ones may be left without the financial support they expected and the deceased individual intended.

Tracking personal property during estate planning

Estate planning can be an enormously complex endeavor. This is especially true when an individual identifies a number of heirs and beneficiaries and there are significant assets with which to deal. However, while passing down retirement accounts and homes can be relatively easy, the matter can become even more detail-oriented when dealing with personal property.

What to consider when choosing a health care proxy

While a lot of estate planning focuses on the nuts and bolts of leaving assets to loved ones, it can also include matters related to end of life care. This is why it is important to give due considerations to legal documents like health care directives. A health care directive names an individual who will take on the responsibility of making health care decisions in the event that the document's creator becomes unable to communicate his or her wishes.

When do trusts no longer function?

The creation of a trust can have a profound impact on its identified beneficiaries. If handled correctly, these estate planning tools can provide financial resources for years to come. The assets contained within those trusts can provide money needed for a beneficiary's education, a beloved pet's care, to further a charitable purpose, or provide a beneficiary with some extra cash to spend on whatever he or she desires. Trusts don't last forever, though, which is why this week we'll briefly look at how trusts can end and what happens when they do.

4 important characteristics of a health care power of attorney

One of the most important estate planning decisions you will make is selecting your health care power of attorney. A health care power of attorney, also known as a health care proxy, is an individual you designate to make medical and health decisions on your behalf in the event you are unable to do so yourself.
