It is a tradition for many people to spend their holidays with loved ones each year. During this time, the family bonds and gets to talk about so many issues that affect their lives. They talk about their successes, plans and failures, and go ahead to forge the way forward.
But few families take the time to talk about estate planning.
While someone might feel like they need to say something, they don’t know what to say and when to bring up the topic. Remember this is the time when the whole family is at the same place, and important decisions need to be made.
Many times we try and avoid uncomfortable conversations to make the family gathering fun and relaxed, but this is the only time in the year where the family is at the same place. Well, you don’t need to talk about all the financial issues that are vital to the family at this time, but one issue needs to be handled urgently – estate planning.
