Almost two out of three Americans do not have an estate plan. However, even if you have a living trust and will, that doesn’t mean you’ve done all you can. Estate plans are documents that need to be updated and reviewed regularly. Assuming you update the estate plan from time to time, there may be other things you haven’t completed.
An estate plan relies on other people, such as beneficiaries and decision-makers. Not only do you need to consider what could happen to you but what could happen to these other people. You might have also overlooked other details of your estate plan. Noticing the small details is the best way to ensure your wishes are carried out.

Selecting decision makers shouldn’t be done on a whim. These people have a huge amount of control over your estate and should be trusted to act in the way you desire. If these people aren’t able (or no longer wish to) do the job, you need to have backups to fill these positions.
For instance, if a guardian passes away or is disabled, a replacement might be needed. The same applies if one of the decision makers says they no longer want to be in that position. Coming up with alternates early will keep you from scrambling later on when something happens.
