Wills and Estates

Estate Planning

Planning your estate is about caring for your loved ones, seeing they are provided for, and making sure your hard-earned property is distributed according to your wishes.

Your estate consists of all your property, including:

  • your home and other real estate
  • tangible personal property such as cars and furniture, and
  • intangible property like insurance, bank accounts, stocks, and pension and social security benefits.
