Religious beliefs can affect many end of life decisions such as becoming an organ donor, funeral and burial arrangement and charitable donations.
Religious convictions involving end of life care should be carefully laid out in your estate planning documents. For example, if a client is strongly against religious observances in their end-of-life care they should specifically state that to help prevent a family dispute.
The best way to ensure that your religious desires are met after your death is to carefully lay them out in your estate plan. This can help decedents better appreciate and understand what you believe in and why.
Through charitable donations and carefully choosing a trustee, you can leave a legacy that reflects your beliefs.
