Lack of estate planning cause Seattle woman trouble

There are several misconceptions out there regarding estate planning. Many Americans see it as a painful and very costly process when in reality, it's only painful and costly for loved ones left behind if one doesn't have a simple and effective estate plan when one dies. A recent study shows that 44 percent of people between the ages of 45 and 64 do not have a will. Most Americans would rather not think of planning for their demise but for a Seattle woman, this prevalent attitude cost her dearly after her husband was killed prematurely in a biking accident.

Long term care planning is a must for every Washington resident

Aging is something just about every Kent resident would love to avoid but, unfortunately, it is inevitable. One of the biggest stresses of aging is the fear of death. While thinking about one's death can be taxing, it is important to consider one's plan - particularly as it relates to long-term care planning - to avoid more stress down the road.

Digital assets becoming a problem for Seattle residents

Losing a loved one is something we must all face in life. Whether it's a friend, family member or an admired idol, death is inevitable and can be very painful, if not torturous to countless Seattle residents. When our loved ones die, their assets are often distributed among close family members and friends through wills or trusts. But what happens to the deceased's digital property, such as their Facebook accounts? Many people are finding themselves in a bit of a legal gray area when it comes to accessing the deceased's digital assets.

Updated wills can make a huge difference

Washington residents may not be immediately concerned with planning for the end of life. This is not always the most comfortable topic to discuss with family members or friends. But, considering the possible implications of avoiding the topic, many residents are taking the seemingly uncomfortable but extremely important steps of estate planning. The increasingly fast pace of life can make it difficult to slow down and really address some of these longer-term issues, but it's not too late to get started by taking the steps to ensure that loved ones will be properly covered through strong estate planning.
