Comprehensive Trust and Estate Planning to Protect Your Loved Ones and Your Legacy
None of us can predict what tomorrow will bring and trying to prepare for a future you can’t see can be overwhelming.
Can you be certain your loved ones will be properly taken care of when you are no longer present?
If you fall ill, can you trust that your preferences for medical care will be understood and honored?
How can you ensure that the legacy you spent your life building will be carried on once you have passed?
The answer to all of these questions is trust and estate planning.
How does estate tax impact me or my beneficiaries?
While trust and estate planning let you prepare your loved ones, protect your legacy, and prevent probate in the event of your illness or its associated estate tax creates confusion.
The estate tax kicks in at $11.58 million. This means that if your estate tax is less, your beneficiaries won’t get any additional tax on your estate. Your heirs, charities, or other beneficiaries still pay normal income tax on these assets based on if they’re IRA dollars, Roth dollars, or non-qualified.
Why trust and estate planning?
Estate planning gives you the power to make important decisions about the things and people you care about most, like:
- Who will take care of your children or other dependent loved ones when you pass away
- When and how your loved ones and charitable causes of your choosing will receive your assets
- Medical directives to tell your doctors and healthcare providers in the event of illness
- Funeral arrangements including preferred funeral homes and method of disposition
Plus, estate planning gives you the power to take charge of your future and your assets and offers your beneficiaries the comfort, security, and peace of mind in knowing your wishes are being fulfilled.
