Key Components of Estate Planning

The key components of estate planning include a collection of documents such as a will, guardianship designations, healthcare power of attorney, beneficiary designations, durable power of attorney, and a personal property memorandum. Life insurance can also play a key role in estate planning by providing tax-free death benefits to beneficiaries. According to one professional, the three basic components of estate planning are a will or trust, powers of attorney for financial and healthcare decisions, and beneficiary designations. A good estate plan should also include an inventory of assets and debts, instructions for distribution of assets after death, and plans for incapacity or disability.
