What is the difference between a Will and an Estate Plan?
A Will is a legal document regarding an individual’s wishes regarding their assets after their death. A Will is only a single piece of a larger Estate Plan.
An Estate Plan is a collection of legal documents that go beyond that of only a will. Often estate plans include components such as a will, trusts, powers of attorney, healthcare directives, etc.
What is the difference between a Will and Trust?
Some key differences between a Will and a Trust:
- A Will can only go into effect upon your death, while a trust can manage property during your life and after your death.
- Individuals can only have one valid Will at a time, while you can have as many trusts as needed to protect your property.
- A Will often goes through probate court, while a Trust will typically avoid probate, saving you beneficiaries time and money.
- A Will that is probated becomes a public document after your death, while a trust almost always remains private.
A Will can name a guardian for minor children while a Trust can not name a guardian for minor children.
How often should I update my Will?
Frequent review and revision of your Will is important. Although some people update their Will more often, we recommend reviewing it at least once every 3 to 5 years, or after a major life event occurs (e.g. marriage, divorce, birth, death, etc.).
