Financial Literacy - Planning for your heirs
OVERVIEW
Estate planning lowdown
Be an informed consumer before seeing an attorney. This information is painless -- and easily digestible.
Planning for your heirs

 Overview
Look inside
 What to know about wills
Think about it: A will reflects your will about how to distribute your assets. Don't let the state impose its will.
 Estate planning components
Estate planning applies to people from all walks of life, even to the castaways on Gilligan's Island.
 Trusts can save time, money and privacy
You can call the shots long after you're dead and gone if you set up a trust while you're still around.
 Trusts for every purpose
Most importantly, trusts ensure that the right people end up with your loot.
