Talking about the future can be difficult, but having conversations with your adult children about your legacy plans is important. Schedule a visit with your loved ones — whether one-on-one over coffee or all together at an official family meeting — and share your estate plans. While you’re together, be sure to answer these three questions:
Do you have an up-to-date will?
How have you designated your assets?
What do you want your legacy to be?
Estate planning can be a simple and powerful way to communicate love and connect with your loved ones on a deeper level. Talking about the future can create more certainty and peace, and even inspire your family to get involved in the causes you’re passionate about.
