Do I have Any Assets to Protect?

If you are visiting this website chances are the answer to this question is “Yes.”  The word “Estate” in “Estate Planning” just means your assets.  It doesn’t matter if their value is $100,000 or $100,000,000 as if you have assets, you need to make a plan for them.  You need to decide who will manage them if you will not be able to and who will benefit from them after you.  GoEstatePlans will allow our Chicago estate planning attorneys to work with you to help you answer these questions and make the necessary decisions.

Your assets include the following:

  • Real Estate
  • Automobiles and other vehicles
  • Bank Accounts, Money Markets, CD’s etc.
  • Retirement Accounts
  • Investment Accounts
  • Life Insurance
  • Business ownership interests
  • Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, etc.
  • Personal Property (e.g. furniture and art)
  • Personal Effects (e.g. jewelry and clothing)
