If you don't find the answers you need ask a new question.

I know a few people who recently set up trust accounts, but I am not really sure why they are needed? What is the purpose and how might they help me? I am 58 and I have grandkids. Until now, I have just been gifting my money in increments.

What else is included in an “estate plan” besides a will? If I just have a will, does that capture most of what is involved in an estate plan? thank you

Do they really need to be locked up in a safe? Can’t I just keep them in my den?

I’m 65 years old and have two grown daughters. I would love to give them something when I pass away, but unfortunately have meager savings, which I’m sure I’ll spend through the rest of my retirement. I do own my home, which is worth $250,000, so do I need to do some sort of estate planning beyond a will to make sure the proceeds are split by my daughters?
