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.

  • Taylor was wonderful and easy to work with.

    “Taylor was wonderful and easy to work with. He was very quick which was helpful since I brought my baby with me. He was also very straightforward which was appreciated! He gave some suggestions on changing up our life insurance policy while also getting all the information needed to write up our documents. When it comes to protecting my family in times of crisis and hard times, I trust we will be protected because of the work that he puts into helping us plan for the unexpected. He was personable and related to our circumstances because he’s been there. I highly recommend him to everyone!”
