For Your New Year's Resolutions
Even amid the good news of the rollout of not one but two vaccines, with more likely on the way, we know that we will be living with the uncertainties and fall-out from the COVID-19 pandemic for a while to come.
As we start the pivot to what our new normal will look like, one of the most "normal' things we should do is to take care of our estate planning. Many Americans remain anxious about what would happen should they get sick and be unable to make informed decisions or manage their financial and legal affairs. Some may have no documents in place, or have outdated ones with incorrect beneficiary/guardian/power of attorney designations. Others may never have completed their planning due to indecisiveness around certain difficult decisions.
