    Ways of Securing Your Family’s Future in Your Absence

       (0 reviews)

    In a time of difficulty, loss or pain, having a clear perspective is almost impossible for any individual. Losing your loved ones has never been easy. But when you die, your loved ones are left to settle your financial affairs.

    We all know handling finances is a difficult task. If the main individual of the family who has been taking care of the finances always suddenly passes away, handling finances can become impossible.

    To make it easier for your family to handle finances after you, here is what you can do. We have tried to include some actionable advice regardingwriting a Will, advance directives, power of attorney and living trusts.

    Creating a File Labelled “My Plan”

    Store copies of your estate planning documents in a file labelled “My Plan” and put them in your locker. This file should include a copy of your

    • Will
    • End-of-life instructions (such as advance directives and a medical power of attorney)
    • Living trusts
    • Your organ donation list
    • Guardianship decisions
    • Real estate records
    • Financial Records for assets and debts

    The file should also contain a copy of your official executor signed by you while you are still alive. Later, the copies of this file can be distributed among your heirs, family members, friends and trust.

    Do not forget to mention your digital estate such as your online accounts and downloaded destinations. Also mention the way you want it all to be handled in your absence.

    Name Your Executor(s)

    People usually name a single executor or multiple executors in their Will. An executor is the individual who is in charge of your estate after you die. They are usually responsible for settling your financial affairs, getting your debts and taxes paid and distributing assets. Also, if necessary they have to deal with probate (which is a legal process of authenticating a Will).

    Couples usually appoint their better half as their executors in the Will. If you are single, then choose someone you trust when writing a Will. An executor can be anyone - your children, a relative or a close friend.

    On the other hand, having a secondary executor mentioned in the Will means you’re covering all bases. The secondary executor comes will be called upon should your primary executor die or refuse to execute the responsibilities bestowed upon them.

    Additionally, you are also supposed to inform your family and loved ones about who the primary and secondary executors are. Hence, they would know whom to contact regarding your estate distribution in your absence.

    If you have any special instructions or wishes to be executed after you die, it is best to inform your executor well in advance. This helps your executor to prepare for any potential risks that may arise and thus can minimise its effects.

    Add your executor as a co-signer on your financial accounts

    Having your executor as a co-signer on your financial accounts will make it easier for them to access the money you have in your bank to pay for your funeral and other expenses. The other expenses may include airfare of your loved ones who cannot afford it otherwise or shipping your beloved pet to a distant relative.

    On the other hand, having a co-signer on your accounts also means that the money will be made available during any probate and is easily made accessible to your heirs.

    If you do not feel comfortable having a co-signer or rather having your executor to be your co-signer, you can simply give them access to £10,000. This amount of money can be used for your funeral and contracting for home repairs to prepare your house for sale.

    Rent a safe deposit box

    In some unfortunate events where your house burns down, it destroys all the records of the estate planning that you have stored. Hence, it is advisable to keep copies of your plan and end-of-life care documents in a bank vault.

    However, make sure that you have listed your primary and secondary executor as your co-signer for the safe deposit box. Having them as a co-signer gives them a direct access to it and do not forget to give them the keys to the box.

    Decide an organ donation

    People usually sign themselves to become an organ donor. So, if you want to become an organ donor, you need to inform your executors, family and close friends. Additionally, you even have to state it in writing and sign the document and preserve it, along with your other important documents.

    If you want to be buried, buy a grave site

    If you want to be buried after your death, you can buy your grave site. All you have to do is to mention it in writing and provide the location of the site to your executor, family and friends.

    Consider Legacy gifts

    People usually leave some amount of their estate for charitable trusts. However, you can either leave that amount of money for one or more organisations as a gift. Just remember, whatever you decide you give, mention it clearly in your Will.

    Update your estate plan regularly

    Not everyone makes a Will or an estate plan early in life. If you are among the few to draft their Will early in life, then you may need to update it. Certain situations in life change over time, if you are married you can get a divorced or you may marry again.

    For this purpose, keep it a habit to review your estate plan at least once a year. Also, keep the documents updated, including investment and bank statements. This will help you make sure there is no confusion regarding your assets and wishes.

    We understand that your death can be difficult for your family to overcome. But to make it easier for them, there are few things that you can do while you are still alive. Remember that the key is to make life easy for your family and friends in your absence.

    • | WEBSITE | WHITEPAPER | FACEBOOK | TWITTER  | TELEGRAM  | YOUTUBE The World of Crypto combined with the Blockchain technology has taken a major place in people’s lives, especially the youngsters! And it goes without saying that Cryptocurrencies are the future of money! But along with entering such exciting phase, there are problems too coming into existence that needs to be tackled. In order to give the people a solution to their problems, especially in the e-Commerce space comes “LiTeum”. The Global e-Commerce market is rapidly rising with over 40 billion transactions annually and with predictions for further growth in the large emerging markets with having more online buyers than offline. It clears up the message that E-Commerce is becoming the NEW channel in both developed and emerging markets. In order to extract more from this entire scenario, the 33% of online merchant and business owners use affiliate or referral programs of a certain kind to attract/enhance sales. Hence, it opens up ample opportunity for promoters/marketers to earn good amount of money. However, the case isn’t so straightforward given a lot of time people do not get rewards for their efforts and that after even generating traffic with hundreds or even thousands of unique visitors to the target, as the commissions are only given once sales are made. So with such structure, it distances a hard working person given low rewards! That’s where LiTeum got the solution for everyone with LiTeum cloud Application, which will convert the marketing effort of e-Commerce affiliates to measurable levels of activities and incentivize it with a Blockchain utility token and that even when there are no sales made!  LiTeum is a marketing platform for e-Commerce space, powered by Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain Technology. It's not built for just one category or range of people, but it’s for EVERYONE or anyone who believes in hard work and wants to have comfort in their life. There are a lot of loopholes in this giant e-Commerce industry, but LiTeum aims to fix them all. With the major points focused is to reduce online marketing and advertising costs for merchants, to motivate the ordinary person into e-Commerce Affiliates and Referral marketing, which will open up a new lane for people to earn through in an easy and consistent way. LiTeum also puts priority to eliminate suspicion with establishing absolute transparency between merchants & affiliates. The security, safety and easiness too are amongst the key features of LiTeum online marketplace. LiTeum is going to be the revolutionary project, which not only will make e-Commerce space a lot easier to manage for all but will also boost the whole industry in terms of popularity.  LiTeum project is very precious with the concept and thought process coming from Mr Daniel Chukwuma Anyamene, the Founder and the CEO of the company and Miss Jana Kozakova, the Co-Founder and the COO of the company. The designed and developed is done by iDiTech s.r.o, a Prague based company comprising of Tech entrepreneurs and developers. However, LiTeum didn’t start suddenly, as the real journey started in 2016; when we with a vibrant team of fearless Tech entrepreneurs and developers dared to challenge convention with our innovative solutions over the years.  Then came the product called “Proximi-Fi (our currently existing platform), which is running steadily in the North American market with several corporate clients and distributors across the United States. LiTeum is created as the extension of the Proximi-Fi platform. LiTeum is a win-win-win creation for everyone involved with e-Commerce Merchants getting their products and services promoted for FREE by genuinely motivated affiliates and referral promoters. Meanwhile, affiliates and referral promoters too are victorious as they get incentivized with LiTeum tokens with aid of AI algorithm even if the promotional activities don’t result in sales. And last but certainly not the least; the online shoppers too, get special discounts and instant secured transactions, when they use LiTeum to order products and services of merchants in LiTeum online marketplace.  So, this is the opportunity to be part of the revolutionary movement to change the way the world works! And in order to do so, we invite everyone to be part of our Token Distribution Even (TDE). LiTeum’s Token Distribution Event is not a traditional ICO sale event, as tokens are not sold or bought with this. LiTeum does not look for investors, given our whole priority works towards development and building up the community around the platform. The primary objective of organizing the TDE is to promote wider crowd adoption and build a community of early adaptors using the Technology to be provided by LiTeum platform.

It will require individual to like Facebook Page, joining the Telegram, Discord Group, Tweet and Retweet on Twitter and so on, along with the option of trying out the exciting products.  To ensure rewards for people contributing to spreading about us, we have 2 tier referral systems in place, which allows people to sign up and receive the FREE tokens.
