Many things can happen in life, and it’s not always possible to plan for every scenario individually. Oftentimes, we never want to think about those what-if scenarios that deal with an untimely death. These topics are tough to think about. That’s why it’s best to frame it as a selfless decision. Thinking about these situations and setting up a trust is beneficial for your children. Establishing a trust protects them in case of untimely incidents and ensures that they will receive an inheritance or any of your wishes without a problem.
Misconceptions about Trusts
Many believe trusts are only for wealthy families, but in reality many middle class and lower-income families can benefit from setting up a trust to ensure their children and loved ones are taken care of.
Why it’s important to plan
Life happens and it’s better to be prepared than be taken by surprise. The founder of Wills and Wellness, Kim Ruddell, goes into detail about several different life scenarios in her latest on-demand videos to express how setting up a plan and/or a trust is beneficial to overcoming these tumultuous times.
