A comprehensive estate plan includes several key components that help safeguard your interests, protect your assets, and provide for your family. A well-rounded estate plan often includes the following components:

Last will: A will outlines your wishes for asset distribution and names an executor to oversee the process.
Trusts: Trusts can be used for various purposes, such as protecting assets, providing for minor children, and avoiding probate.
Power of Attorney: A power of attorney authorizes someone to make financial decisions if you become incapacitated.
Advance Healthcare Directives: These documents, such as living wills and healthcare proxies, allow you to specify your medical care preferences and appoint a healthcare proxy to make decisions.
Beneficiary Designations: Ensuring that beneficiary designations on financial accounts and insurance policies are up to date is a crucial aspect of estate planning.
