Crash Course in Estate Planning

The Essential Guide to Wills, Trusts, and Your Personal Legacy

Buy This Book

In the AARP Crash Course in Estate Planning: The Essential Guide to Wills, Trusts, and Your Personal Legacy, lawyer Michael Palermo expertly steers novices through the estate-planning wilderness.

In plain, easy-to-understand English, Palermo explains everything you need to know about:

  • Wills and the probate process

  • The pros and cons of living trusts

  • Taxes and how to pay less

  • Naming a guardian for your minor children
  • Living wills and other advance medical directives
  • Marshaling and protecting retirement assets
  • Ideas for keeping your money "all in the family" in the event a spouse remarries


Palermo tells us why this topic is too important for would-be "do-it-yourselfers" and urges readers to consult an estate-planning lawyer before taking official steps. Bone up on the bevy of rules and tools presented here and you'll be able to work intelligently with an attorney. The result: an estate plan that best suits you and those you leave behind.

With a foreword by consumer finance guru Ric Edleman and a handy glossary of terms, the AARP Crash Course in Estate Planning offers expertise you can trust.
