Estate Planning

Protect Your Family & Ensure Your Future Wishes

At the start of a new year, you may be preparing your future financial plans. For your security and that of your family, an estate plan is an excellent place to start.

Begin the process with Northern Star Scouting’s FREE estate planning tool.

With estate planning, you’re transferring the responsibility of handling your wishes to someone else when it becomes necessary. Instead of leaving this task for loved ones who may be emotional, make sure everything is taken care of with proper documentation ahead of time.

There are several reasons for estate planning:

  • Avoiding paying more federal and state taxes than necessary.
  • Ensuring that assets are distributed as you want.
  • Naming the people you choose for your own care if you become incapacitated.
  • Naming the people you choose to care for your minor children if needed.

If you do not make those decisions and designations while you are alive and legally competent, the courts will determine who will get your assets, raise your children and how much your estate will pay in taxes. You can avoid that with an estate plan. Start your estate plan by taking advantage of a FREE service by visiting
