Why Should I Care About Planning?

Share this post

Many people consider estate planning to be an act of stewardship. They spend their life maximizing the use of their “time, talents, treasure, and trust.” They want to ensure that the benefits of this stewardship will continue even after the ability to control has ended. The control and benefit of everything we “own” will eventually be transferred. So planning helps control how, when, and to whom the transfer takes place, and anticipates the consequences of the transfer.

People plan in order to protect the people, causes, and things that are important to them, now and in the future. They do this by controlling whatever they can during life, and making sure that people they trust take their place when required.
