Your estate plan is where your loved ones will turn when they want to make sure they are following your final wishes. This is often a great source of comfort for them. When you create the estate plan, you will name an estate administrator. This person will make sure that your affairs are taken care of. You should make sure that you name a person who is responsible, pays attention to details and is able to handle the duties.
We realize that having to deal with a person's estate isn't always easy. There are quite a few things that these individuals have to do that might be hard to do when they are so raw with emotion from your death. This is the reason that some people choose to name an administrator who isn't related to them.
No matter who you choose for your administrator, you should do what you can to make sure that you are leaving everything in order for them. This means having your estate plan completed with detailed instructions and providing as much information as you can.
One thing that might help your estate administrator is keeping a comprehensive inventory of assets that are part of the estate. This can take some time to compile, but we can help you get it done. You might also consider keeping a record of contact information for your heirs and beneficiaries. This can prove to be invaluable to the administrator when it is time to make notifications.
