As we near the end of 2014, it’s time to begin thinking about how to make 2015 an exceptional year. Every year, millions of people across the world make New Year’s resolutions. These resolutions come in many forms. Weight loss goals are common, though many are often abandoned within the first month. Other common resolutions include paying down debts, pursuing a new career, or freeing up more time to spend with loved ones. If any of these goals are part of your New Year’s resolution, we wish you all the best in your pursuits.
One goal that doesn’t regularly make the list is commitment to create an estate plan. Estate planning often falls on the “I don’t have time” or “I don’t need it right now” lists. If you find yourself placing estate planning on the back burner, we at MH challenge you to get your estate plans in place. If you have an estate plan, we challenge you to have it reviewed to ensure that it is up to date.
Whether it is creating a will, a revocable living trust, or health care documents, we urge you to place estate planning on the top of your New Year’s resolution list. Take the time now to organize and prepare yourselves to accomplish this very important goal. Some people achieve their goals, while others sputter, give up, and determine they will try again next year. No matter who you are, and no matter your circumstances, MH is here to help you achieve your estate planning resolution and make 2015 the very best!
