WHY PLANNING IS A MUST

Helping Longmont & Northern Colorado Residents To Be Prepared

Without proper estate planning, you can leave your family with a mess. Unexpected events can happen at any time to anyone. I want to make a positive difference in people’s lives. My mission is to encourage and help people and their families to be prepared in advance if a tragedy were to strike because of a car accident, fall, stroke, illness or death. I’ve seen first-hand what happens when folks are either prepared or not prepared with proper lifetime mental disability and asset transfer planning at death.


Great Families Plan

Be Prepared: Whether you’re a working single adult, young parents with children, preparing for retirement, or retired, you need to be prepared for whatever life may bring with a comprehensive Will or Trust plan.

Without a spouse or dependents, you may think you’re not ready for a will or trust. But who will make your healthcare and financial decisions if you’re unable? 

SINGLE ADULTS

Who will your children live with on either a temporary or permanent basis? Take the guesswork out of the equation and plan for the unknown now.

YOUNG FAMILIES

Preparation later in life is key. From wills to trusts, ensure that you and your family are prepared for the future.

Regardless of your family situation, age or assets, you should be prepared in the event of your sudden mental incapacity or death. It’s a loving thing to do for your spouse, children and /or grandchildren.

Peace of Mind: I’ve helped many people over the years be prepared when it comes to their estate and protecting their family’s future. My personal goal is to give clients peace of mind in the event of death or mental disability. Their families can be well taken care of as a result of thoughtful and knowledgeable planning

YOU NEED A WILL OR TRUST PLAN EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT “WEALTHY”

What Is My “Estate”?:  Every adult should have a Will or Trust plan. “Estate” is the legal term used to define your property and money—basically, everything that belongs to you. You don’t have to consider yourself wealthy to need estate planning. You can make good decisions after you have learned about the various options and choices you have for lifetime disability planning, protection planning for children and adults, asset transfer planning and IRA planning.

Planning for your future should start in the present.

Plan at Any Stage of Life: It doesn’t matter if you’re young and single, a married couple with young children, or preparing to settle gracefully into retirement, the time to start planning for the unexpected is now. Young adults can make sure someone can act on their behalf for financial and medical purposes. Couples with minor dependents can set up guardians for their children. Retirees can ensure their life insurance is intact, and their wills or trusts are up-to-date with their current wishes.

Do It Now! If you’re ready to start preparing for your future, I encourage you to reach out today by phone or email. Once I receive your message, my goal is to respond within 24 hours to maintain the highest level of professionalism, so expect to hear from me soon. Couples with minor dependents can set up guardians for their children. Working folks and retirees can insure that their will or trust plan is up-to-date so it meets their current circumstances and wishes.

Intelligent DecisionsI frequently sit down with some really neat people and explain how estate planning can protect them and their families in the event of their mental disability or death. Some people do it; some people don’t; all adults should. It’s ALWAYS your choice. But you have to know what your choices are so you can make an informed decision.
