What Is Retirement Planning?
Few people can—or want to—work forever. But, when you leave the workforce, you need a way to sustain yourself. You need money to live on, but the cost of living keeps increasing. You probably want to make sure you have enough financial support to live the life that you want, with the freedom to travel or enjoy things that you’ve put off for far too long. A sound retirement plan can offer you the opportunity to build a stable future for yourself and your loved ones.
Retirement planning is a process that involves:
- Setting goals for retirement income
- Saving and investing in order to reach those goals
- Distributing money during retirement
That is retirement planning in its simplest form. In reality, there are many different steps and stages to retirement and each person’s retirement plan will be highly personalized and individual. There are tax consequences to consider, plus choices to be made about planning for long-term care, leaving assets to loved ones, and more. It’s about maximizing assets and minimizing tax.

An individual can write his own will in Georgia but must follow certain statutory rules laid out in order to ensure the will is deemed valid by a probate court.
People hire a probate attorney because the benefits of having an attorney outweigh the costs of time and effort. Mainly people hire a probate attorney to save time and energy, reduce their worries, and navigate the probate process with a professional. So no, you do not need a lawyer to probate a will, if it is worth the time and effort to do it yourself.
Executor is the person named in the last will and testament that's appointed by the probate court to administer the estate of the decedent according to the will.
In Georgia, there is a legal mandate for the holder of a will to submit it to the court for probate per O.C.G.A. § 53-5-5. If a will is not filed with the court, any heir or beneficiary can petition the court to direct the will holder to file the will with the proper court. Wills are meant to be public documents once the grantor has passed away. Sometimes if a will is not filed with the court, beneficiaries and heirs cannot take legal possession of assets specified in the Last Will and Testament.
