Introduction to SFC
Why is it good to have an estate plan?
- You decide who in your family will recieve your assets.
- If you have children under age 18, it protects them from being placed in the wrong guardianship.
- It stops beneficiaries from overpaying in taxes. With just a little planning, you can reduce much or even all of your federal and state or inheritance taxes with your estate.
- It eliminates the stress of decisions on family members, which can cause rifts.

The Bottom Line
Simply put, if you want your assets and your loved ones protected when you no longer can do it, you will need an estate plan. Without one, your loved ones could face huge tax burdens and the courts could designate how your assets are divided, or even who gets your children.
