Thought of the Day 334

Reason #3 why children should consider their own estate planning at the time parents are going through the estate planning process - Continuity.  Most children are completely in the dark about their parents' estate plans, and what's worse, they are afraid to ask about it.  Conversely, most parents keep their estate planning a secret shrouded in mystery, considering it either a topic not worth discussing or none of their children's business.  Although there are circumstances that dictate the need for silence and non-disclosure, generally everyone wins when parents disclose, communicate, and educate.  Guardians and other fiduciaries are better unified and solidified, timing and the carrying out of special situations is discussed and not left to chance, the availability of resources is clarified, problems within the family are better identified, post-mortem choices such as the exercise of powers of appointment are disclosed and described, family members are made aware of special planning situations that represent opportunities to maximize provisions for those with special needs, creditor, marital, or other problems, and much more.  Remember that education leapfrogs your family estate planning into the major leagues.  Conscious continuity will take you to the post season, and beyond.
