Estate Planning is Like… Working a Puzzle

Bailey and I bought some puzzles at our neighborhood garage sale a while back. We started work on a 100-piece jigsaw puzzle of Mickey Mouse and Goofy, but something was wrong. Pieces were missing — a lot of pieces! In fact, we counted and there were only 57 of the 100 pieces there. We did what we could, but the puzzle was useless and ended up in the trash.

This reminded me that estate planning is just like a puzzle. And you know how much I like to compare everything in life to estate planning! (Read how estate planning is like your favorite board game here.) If you’re missing pieces in your plan (or you got a “bargain” on your plan) then your life can be thrown into chaos when someone dies, faces a stroke or struggles with dementia and needs to go into long-term care. Our process is so thorough that we make sure there are no missing pieces to the puzzle. When the time comes to use your plan, all the pieces will be there in working order. No surprises.

The best way to find out if your plan has all its pieces, and to see if Edwards Group is right for you, is to attend our workshop, Aging With Confidence: 9 Keys to Wise Planning & Peace of Mind. At this 1.5-hour workshop you’ll learn about effective planning for every stage of life. Check out the upcoming dates here and be sure to call us at 217-726-9200 to save yourself a seat.

If you have nagging doubts about your plan, or huge worries that you don’t even have a plan, give us a call today and take your first step towards peace of mind.
