Estate planning is the process of making plans (and formalising them) about what happens to you (your care and wellbeing) and your estate, in the event you become incapacitated or die.
When we talk about ‘your estate’, we mean everything you own; for example, real estate, vehicles, money in your bank account, furniture, investments, shares, life insurance and even personal possessions like jewellery or artwork.
It is important to make decisions yourself about what will happen to your assets when you die or who will manage your financial and care decisions if you become incapacitated and unable to make those decisions yourself.
