It is important to protect what you've worked for. Perhaps you have some future plans made for your estate. But some decisions may be too difficult.

Estate preservation planning can seem complicated, but the concept is fairly simple. The greatest challenge is deciding exactly what you want to accomplish with your estate. Typically, estate preservation planning involves the following objectives:
- Control - If you do not decide who gets what, the state will! A carefully drafted will allows you to specify who will receive your property when you die.
- Conservation - Your heirs could lose a sizable chunk of your estate to settlement costs. You can reduce estate shrinkage through trusts, gifts, and other options.
- Liquidity - If money is not readily available to pay final expenses, your assets may have to be sold, perhaps at bargain prices.
- Survivor Care - Depending on the ages and health of your survivors, you may want to provide income or funds to assist in their future care.
