The thought of discussing your affairs is an important part of preparing your estate. Planning for the future should include events and things you want to do in the very near future, however, it should also include things that need to take place should something happen to you in the far and distant future.
So, where should you start? Keeping the lines of communication open with family is crucial to ensuring that your wishes are carried out the way you want, when need be. This means having an open and honest discussion with family members, beneficiaries and intended executors during every step of the process, to avoid blindsiding them later. During the grieving process especially, things like planning a funeral, and what to do with your possessions, are the last things you would want your family to have to worry about.
