Everyone needs to have some estate documents prepared. No matter who you are, or what your net worth might be, you should have a health care proxy and a durable power of attorney in place because these documents will determine how decisions will be made on your behalf if you become incapacitated. Almost everyone should have a will drafted, and any parent (and many others) should consider executing a revocable trust so they can control how and when their assets will be distributed. As you approach retirement, irrevocable trusts and other tactics can be used to be help protect and pass on your financial worth to your children and grandchildren.
