A Timely Reminder: Estate Planning Trigger Points

Even if you are not focusing on superannuation pensions, why not take the opportunity to reconsider how effective your clients’ current Estate Planning strategy is in light of these life changes:

  • Birth of a child or grandchild

  • Changes to financial circumstances
  • Health issues
  • Family disharmony
