Estate Planning: Life Is Like a Jigsaw Puzzle

As an estate planning attorney, I have often thought that estate plans are like a puzzle. In order to have a comprehensive estate plan, you need to have all the puzzle pieces that relate to your life goals, and they need a proper fit. Once completed, you can see the whole picture — a well-protected legacy at any stage of life.

On Sunday at church, Father Daniel Gatti shared his thoughts reflecting on a 1,000-piece puzzle and discovered “10 Reasons Why Life Is Like a Large Jigsaw Puzzle.”

These are the 10 reasons:

  1. It’s a challenge; a task to be completed
  2. It can be tedious; there will be trial and error
  3. You have to try and try again, remaining hopeful
  4. You should never give up
  5. It requires attention to the big picture AND to small details
  6. There IS a solution
  7. It’s important to recognize patterns and connections
  8. Patience and perseverance are required
  9. Assistance is welcomed and appreciated
  10. Completion brings great joy and satisfaction

Estate Planning has a Puzzle for Every Life Circumstance

Father Gatti suggests that you take on a large jigsaw puzzle and learn about life … And I suggest getting your house in order by gathering the pieces of your estate planning puzzle.

Here are some critical pieces of the puzzle to consider:

  1. Durable Power of Attorney
  2. Health Care Proxy
  3. Living Will
  4. Last Will and Testament
  5. Revocable Living Trusts
  6. Long Term Care Plan
  7. ILITs for Insurance
  8. Retirement Plan
  9. Family Protection Trusts
  10. Estate Tax Plan
