Effective estate management enables you to manage your affairs during your lifetime and control the distribution of your wealth after death. An effective estate strategy can spell out your healthcare wishes and ensure that they're carried out – even if you are unable to communicate. It can even designate someone to manage your financial affairs should you be unable to do so.
Everything you have accumulated during your lifetime is considered your estate. That includes your home, bank accounts, insurance policies, and other valuables as well. Ensuring that your legacy is carried out according to your wishes after you pass requires a well-planned strategy.
