Do you have a will?
Your will should control all of the property or interest in the property that you own. Bank account, real estate, furniture, stocks and bonds, jewelry are all examples of assets in your name and your estate.
Your will should also control what you might also hold as assets in several forms of title other than in your name alone. Joint tenancy is a regular form of ownership which takes assets away from control by will or living trust. Beneficiary designations on securities accounts and bank accounts are alternatives, which should be carefully considered as well. Finally, assets, which have beneficiary designations, such as life insurance, IRAs, qualified retirement plans and some annuities, are very important parts of your estate which require careful coordination with your other assets in writing your will.
