Estate Planning for Stay-at-Home Parents

Don't Overlook the Value of Stay-at-Home Parents

When crafting an estate plan, it's easy to focus on the financial contributions of the house the spouse that works outside the home while overlooking the immense value provided by a stay-at-home parent (SAHP). This oversight can lead to significant challenges if the unexpected happens. Without proper planning, families may face emotional and financial turmoil, struggling to replace the essential roles and duties that the stay-at-home parent fulfilled.

What You Can Do to Solve It

To prevent this scenario, it's crucial to include comprehensive estate planning for both parents. This involves securing life insurance for the SAHP, just as you would for the working parent. Consider the costs of childcare, housekeeping, cooking, and other daily tasks that the stay-at-home parent manages. Additionally, if the children are homeschooled, determine how their education will be handled in the absence of the SAHP. Proper planning ensures these needs are met without burdening the surviving spouse with insurmountable tasks during a period of grief.
