Financial planning is essential to ensure the peace of mind of our loved ones, especially in the United States. Here, there are multiple laws related to inheritance distribution, leading many families to lose generational wealth.

After 10 years specializing in estate planning, during which I’ve heard many tragic stories due to poor planning, I always advise my clients to build a strategy that allows them to protect their legacy so that when their time comes, they leave behind only tranquility, not debts.

Now, let’s get into it. When talking about planning, it’s not just about accumulating assets but also about properly protecting them. Surely, you’ve wondered at some point, “How to have good financial planning?” It’s time to explain the 4 pillars to achieve it.

Among the four essential documents that should be part of your planning are the Revocable Living Trust, Living Will, Last Will, and one that often goes unnoticed, Life Insurance. What is the purpose of each? Let me tell you!

The Revocable Living Trust is a key instrument that allows you to efficiently and privately transfer your assets and properties to your loved ones after your passing. It avoids the long and costly probate process, ensuring that your wishes are fulfilled without legal complications and protecting assets from lawsuits or divorces for your future generations.

The Living Will is another crucial document that sets out your medical preferences in critical situations, ensuring that your wishes are respected even if you cannot express yourself.

The Last Will, commonly known as a testament, is a legal document that specifies how you want to distribute your assets and belongings after your passing. It is an important complement to your Revocable Living Trust. It ensures that those assets not included in the trust are also transferred there, guaranteeing complete protection for your estate.

And last but not least is Life Insurance. These plans provide financial security to your loved ones in the event of your death, helping cover expenses, pay debts, inheritance taxes, and maintain your family’s standard of living in your absence.

Now that you know how to have good financial planning, it’s time to design a plan! This is a crucial step to ensure that your wishes are respected and that your loved ones are financially protected.
