Estate Planning Gift Ideas for Mom

Mother's dayMother’s Day is a day away. If you still need gift ideas for that special mom in your life, here are four estate planning gift ideas.

  1. The gift of sound mind: Suggest that she designate a backup guardian for any minor children, so she does not have to worry about “what if” situations.
  2. The gift of honored wishes: Help mom make a will.
  3. The gift of savings: Make sure mom knows about all the tax deductions she can get.
  4. The gift of giving: Make sure mom knows she can choose who to leave her life insurance policy and bank accounts to.
