3 Ways to Pass on Your Legacy to Heirs
How do you want to be remembered? Someone who leaves lots of money to heirs may be remembered as successful or even generous. However, you may desire to create a greater legacy for yourself. How can you use estate planning to pass on more than just cash? Here are three ways.
- Audio and Video Files – The modern generation is all about technology. The best way to reach young minds and hearts is through digital media. Audio and video files that you leave behind allotting your wealth of life experience can make a great impact on your heirs and import vital values to those you leave behind so they don’t have to make the same mistakes that you did.
- Photos and Letters – Of course, there is a place for old-school media in an estate plan as well. Whether it is a family photo album with names and dates to share the family legacy or handwritten letters to family members, this gives you the opportunity to personalize the message you pass along to your beneficiaries.
- Specific Trusts – This is a great way to create a legacy. Leave funds in trust for a charitable organization you support. Create an educational trust for school-age Leave behind incentive trusts that are to be used for specific things so that funds are only dispensed when your nephew finally decides to open that restaurant, or your children take their kids on an annual family vacation.
