What is Posterity Planning?

Learn How Our McKinney Estate Planning Lawyers Can Help

Posterity planning is a method of estate planning where an individual focuses on creating opportunities for his or her family, friends, or loved ones. In contrast, most estate planning attorneys’ primary concern in planning for an individual’s estate is the transfer of assets. Transferring assets is important; however, it should not be the primary focus in posterity planning.

Providing Opportunities

The most sophisticated people in the world plan for opportunities for those who they love. We all have goals in our lives. Most of those goals revolve around our needs of certainty, love, connection, variety, and significance. Many times people believe that money fulfills these needs. After time we all learn that money does not provide for these needs; however, money can be used to provide proper experiences and tools to help an individual find these needs in his or her personal life.

Posterity planning is planning to create opportunity to provide these needs to your loved ones. This can include:

  • Helping a person find significance, variety, connection
  • Ensuring the certainty in his or her future
  • Helping to fund a plan for high education in order to get ahead in life

A trust can be created to help focus your loved one’s attention to seek a proper education and help ensure that they take the steps to make the best of their life.

    “My wife and I went to discuss having wills drawn. Mr Willingham and his staff were more than competent, They were friendly and they treated us with a great deal of respect. We did not have a great deal of money or assets but they spent the time needed to make us feel comfortable. Besides that Mr. Willingham explained the 4 documents that were the most important to us in our situation, gave us very sound advice on protecting the assets we have. It was a great experience. They really understand Elder law and what is important to those of us getting on in years.”
