These foundational documents are the cornerstone of your estate planning, and veterans might have unique estate planning considerations depending on their individual situation.

Some other aspects of foundational estate planning to keep in mind include beneficiary designations that are used to manage former and current employment retirement plans, IRAs and annuities.

Make sure that your legal and tax advisors are consulted regarding these possibilities. Make sure that you have liability insurance and a personal property plan in place as well. None of these aspects of your estate planning should be an afterthought.
