What Are The Basic Components Of An Estate Plan?

The specifics of an estate plan will depend in part upon the individual’s assets, circumstances, and goals, but the following documents are essential to almost every thorough plan:

  • Will Or Trust - A will is a document that allows a person to state how they want their assets dealt with upon their death. For example, an individual might choose to have their assets donated to a charity or organization, distributed equally among their children, or reserved entirely for a specific individual. The assets listed in a will must go through the probate process prior to being distributed; a properly created and funded trust functions similarly to a will but allows for the probate process to be avoided. Depending on a person’s individual circumstances, a trust may better suit their needs than a will, or vice versa. These determinations are best made with the assistance of an experienced estate planning attorney in Oklahoma City, OK.
  • Durable Power Of Attorney - This document allows a person to appoint someone whom they would trust to handle their financial affairs in the event of incapacitation.
  • Medical Power Of Attorney - This document allows a person to appoint someone whom they would trust with medical decision-making authority in the event of incapacitation. For example, if someone were rendered unconscious or otherwise unable to make decisions due to a medical condition, the person holding the medical power of attorney would be able to provide consent for medical care and treatment on that individual’s behalf.
  • Advance Directive - An advance directive is similar to a medical power of attorney document in that it deals with medical decision-making, but different in that it applies to end-of-life decisions, such as whether to go forth with a life-saving surgery, accept or decline CPR, or remain on life support.
