The idea of getting your final worldly affairs in order can be intimidating. You understand the importance of estate planning, but you may dread the idea of having to comb through every asset that you have and decide who gets what. Of course, this action is not exactly necessary for estate planning, and each person's plan and the way that he or she plans is different.
If you do not yet feel ready to dive directly into getting the necessary forms, such as a power of attorney document or even a will, in place, you may want to start somewhere simpler. Your possible transfer on death accounts could be a wise starting point.
