Give the Gift of Estate Planning This Holiday Season And Receive 15% Off

Shopping for the holidays this year will be very different from any other year. Make a difference this holiday season by thinking outside the box and give the gift that too few people think about giving — estate planning.


Estate planning is an essential task that everyone should undertake no matter their age, circumstances, or financial situation. And it’s an invaluable gift.


For yourself:

While the holiday season is generally a time to give to others, it should also be a time to treat yourself. And even though planning for your passing doesn’t seem like a treat one gives oneself, it is. First of all, you will ensure that your wishes are heard and met if you pass away. It ensures there are no conflicts between your family members or messes they are left to clean up.


Planning tools like wills, powers of attorney, and trusts let them know precisely what you want. They include what your funeral should look like, how to pay for it, where your money should go, or who gets what assets. Having an estate plan will provide a clear path for family members to follow.

 

For others:

Do you have that son, daughter, grandchild, or other relatives and do not know what to give them? Give them a nudge this holiday season to get their planning done with a pre-paid estate plan.


Giving the gift of estate planning may sound unusual but may be the best gift you’ve ever given. Individuals at every stage of life can benefit from having an estate plan. During or immediately after graduating from college, getting married, committing to a relationship, or starting a family are key stages when everyone should consider protecting their assets and their end-of-life goals.


Once an estate plan is in place, you’ll have peace of mind for many holidays to come. Give us a call today at 206-926-9848 to give the best gift you’ve ever given!
