Financial uncertainty and your estate plan

When it comes to estate planning, there is a myriad of factors to take into consideration. On the one hand, creating an estate plan (or making certain changes to an estate plan when necessary) can provide a great deal of security and allow people to rest easier at night knowing that the future of their estate is protected. On the other hand, people may experience financial uncertainty for any number of reasons, whether their job is lost, they face major expenses due to an unforeseen health crisis or they break up with their spouse. This uncertainty can carry over into one’s estate plan and it is important to address these challenges appropriately.

If you are having a hard time due to financial uncertainty, you should carefully look into your unique situation and figure out which steps need to be taken. You may find that revising your estate plan could help ease some of your concerns and get rid of the worries you have, or you may need to focus on other facets of your life (such as addressing job-related issues, for example). Everyone is in a different position when it comes to their financial situation and their estate plan, so you should take an approach that is individualized based on your needs and the needs of those you love.
