Estate planning is the acquisition, preservation, and the
disposition of one's assets.
The usual focus is on the transfer of these assets at death.

assets after your death, it can also involve planning for
the use of your assets for your care if you become unable

These tools include ownership of assets with a right of survivorship,
beneficiary designations, powers of attorney, and living trusts.

assistance of a financial planner.
