Take a guess who profits the most when you die without a plan. Yes, failing to make a plan might actually generate more revenue for attorneys and your family.
So yes, die without a plan makes life better for everybody except your family.
On the other hand, I believe making choices today can be the saving grace for a happy family.”
Here are a few ways you help your family:
- Giving them permission to transfer your stuff before entering a nursing home,
- Picking a back-up guardian for your child,
- Helping them determine whether you should be buried or cremated,
- Picking a quarterback to facilitate your estate,
- Picking a back-up quarterback to handle your estate,
- Helping your family identify heirlooms (like wedding rings),
- Identifying a home for your pets, and
- Everything else.
Of course, if your family member didn’t have a plan, Minnesota protects families from unreasonable probate costs.
Die Without a Plan
In case it isn’t obvious, no, I do not want you to die without a plan. In fact, I think we can offer tremendous value to our families (small and large) when we give them help.
