New York City Estate Administration

Estate Administration NY

When most people think of estate administration and estate planning, they think about creating a will or trust that will distribute their assets when they die in the way they wish. In short, most people equate estate planning with death.

This is probably one of the main reasons individuals put off estate administration and estate planning until they are seniors or feel that death may be looming. However, estate-planning is for the living.

Estate Plans

A comprehensive estate plan includes protecting your hard-earned assets and wealth while you are alive, including protection from creditors in the event of an accident or unexpected illness. It also includes minimizing taxes and avoiding probate. However, a comprehensive estate plan also can include living wills, health care directives, powers of attorney, and planning for special-needs children, Medicaid, long-term nursing care and other elder care matters
