Components of Massachusetts Estate Plan

In Massachusetts, a basic estate plan should consist of a Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney, and Health Care Proxy. These documents require careful attention and each one must be properly tailored to fit your specific needs. Along with a basic estate plan, your situation may require the use of other estate planning techniques. For example, a Trust is an effective estate planning tool that offers an array of options and protections that can be customized to your unique situation. For parents, it is essential that your estate plan provide financial security and custodial safeguards for your children. Consideration of your bank accounts, retirement accounts, and life insurance policies is an important part of any estate plan. Beneficiary designations and rights of survivorship should be properly set and integrated into your estate plan.
