As life changes, so should your Estate Plan: new child or children, marriage or divorce, significant variation in net worth, or the acquisition and/or sale of real estate are just a few life changes that can potentially have a dramatic effect on the structure of your Estate Plan. Additionally, changes to the applicable law can potentially have a profound impact on your estate plan even if your life situation remains relatively unaltered.
In order to assist you in ensuring that your Estate Plan stays up-to-date, the Estate Planning and Legacy Law Center is proud to offer theLegacy Protection Plan™. Under this plan, you will be provided with the opportunity to have an Annual Funding Review, have either an Annual OR Bi-Annual Review, make minor adjustments due to changes in trustee or beneficiary designations, update designees in your Durable Power of Attorney and Healthcare Directives, have a reasonable number of no charge telephone and notary services, and the membership in EPLLC Client Portal™.
We will provide you with a pre-meeting “checklist” to ensure all critical assets have been properly funded into the trust and will provide funding assistance at a preferred rate.
You will have the ability to make a reasonable number of no-charge calls to our paralegals and administrative staff with questions about your Estate Plan throughout the year.
PLEASE NOTE: calls with attorneys may be billed at our usual hourly rates, including calls to staff requiring attorney input.
We will include you in the following programs to keep you in touch with changes and developments in Estate Planning:
A complimentary one hour review of Client’s Estate Plan with family members, Trustees or successor Trustees upon Trust Maker’s incapacity or death.
