Naming your executor or estate trustee reflects the high standing you hold for another person, and is, perhaps, one of life's highest compliments.
When you entrust someone with the responsibility for administration and distribution of your personal assets to your family, friends and charities, it comes with a high level of responsibility and is not a tsk to be taken lightly.
ERAssure has prepared this simple to use "Inheritance Planning Guide" to help you through you own planning process. The guide is intended to raise awareness around some of the areas that may create challenges and raise risks for your executor(s), help gather information that will be helpful to them, and ultimately provide guidance and support to your executors(s) to help them administer your estate to the terms of your Will.
"2 weeks ofsolid work on your estate can be worth more to your family than the financial gains of the past 10 years"
