Spring is a time for welcoming warmer weather, shaking off the cobwebs and cleaning up all those things that you ignored during the doldrums of winter. Dusting, vacuuming and cleaning the windows are a must, but when engaging in spring cleaning, remember to also review your legal and financial documents to make sure they are current and still reflect your wishes. Here is a list of important items to check:
- The named beneficiaries of your retirement accounts, life insurance policies, annuities and other financial investments
- The name(s) of your nominated Executor(s) and/or Trustee(s) in your Will or Trust
- The identity of the agent and successor agent for your Power of Attorney
- The name of your Health Care Proxy agent and substitute agent
Are the choices you made years ago still reflective of your current wishes? If you think it’s time to review and/or update your estate and disability plan, please give us a call so one of our knowledgeable attorneys can assist you.
