Terminal illness and estate planning

On Behalf of | May 24, 2019 | Estate Planning |

Some people set up an estate plan when they are in good health and are not aware of any major health concerns. However, others may decide to create a will or a trust when they discover that they have a terminal illness. Whether someone is diagnosed with late-stage cancer or another illness that threatens their life, this can be an overwhelming and emotionally devastating position to be in. People struggling with a terminal illness may have many questions and a lot of uncertainty about their future, their assets and how this illness will affect those they love. Fortunately, estate plans can offer peace of mind and security.

If you are struggling with a terminal illness, it is crucial to look into your estate planning options and protect your assets promptly. You should try to stay positive, although our law firm knows how difficult that can be. Some people have been able to live much longer than expected and estate plans can be very helpful in these circumstances as well. After all, knowing that your estate will be taken care of in the event that something happens can allow people who are suffering to focus on other responsibilities and aspects of life.

It is very important for those who are struggling with a terminal illness to do everything they can to make life easier and eliminate stress and other negative emotions. Creating an estate plan is one way that many people going through this have been able to improve their outlook on the future.
