Resources To Help You Plan Your Estate
You may think it is too early to start thinking about planning your estate or writing your will, but the truth is, it’s never too early. Accidents can happen and it’s better to be prepared when they do.
Get Started Planning Your Estate
It’s a good idea to know the legislation around buying a home, considering it could be your largest asset. Learn how you can receive tax exemptions, qualify for rebates and manage your asset.
How To Write A Will
Writing a will can be tedious and if you don’t know how to properly do it, you could leave out important information or make crucial mistakes resulting in having your Will invalidated and not accepted by the Probate Court.
There are multiple elements of preparing a valid Will, but our advise is to seek a professional advise instead of doing it by yourself, since that may have disastrous results.
Being An Executor
Wills usually name an executor, which is a person responsible for carrying out the instructions in the Will. You can appoint more than one person as an executor. The executor has some basic responsibilities such as completing an inventory and valuation of all assets and debts, gathering names and address of all beneficiaries, filing tax returns for the deceased and for the estate., etc.
What To Do Following A Death Of A Beneficiary
It is important to report the death of a beneficiary to the federal government as soon as possible to avoid benefit overpayments. You will need to obtain proof of death through a statement of death or death certificate and provide the social insurance number.
A survivor’s pension is a monthly payment made to the legal spouse or common-law partner of the deceased contributor organized by The Canada Pension Plan. Find out if you qualify, how much money you could receive and when you should apply by contacting us.
