In simple terms, estate assets are assets that you own in your personal name at the date of your death. These are the assets that are dealt with in your Will. Non estate assets are dealt with otherwise.
For many people, their superannuation is their biggest asset. However, your superannuation is not an estate asset to be dealt with under your Will. Instead, it is an asset held on your behalf by the trustee of your superannuation fund.
If you know youâ€™re going to die, you will want to do whatâ€™s best for your family, but youâ€™re probably also going to want to have a bit of fun while youâ€™re still feeling ok.
