Estate Planning
Protecting Your Family and Legacy

Beyond the Front Door

The only thing worse than suddenly losing a beloved family member to an accident or illness is losing that family member and not having a way to pay the bills because they didn’t have their estate planning documents in order. If something were to happen to you, what would become of the people who depend on you?

Estate planning and legacy protection is about making sure the loved ones you leave behind will be provided for, and that your money and assets will go to the people and organizations you want to have them.


If you don’t have any children or dependents to leave your estate to, you can always leave it to a friend or partner who has been foremost in your life. Or maybe there’s a charity you think is having an especially important impact on your community, and you want them to have some or all of your estate so they can use it to continue doing good work. That can only happen if you have an estate plan in place.
