Estate Planning Ensures Your Assets are Protected

Estate planning is something that can benefit you at various stages of your lifetime.

An effective plan will ensure that ownership and control of your assets passes to your intended beneficiaries in the correct proportions and in a way that minimizes the amount of tax taken out on the income and capital gains earned on those assets. Furthermore, it will protect those assets should a beneficiary be involved in situations like bankruptcy or divorce.

If you have a will or a trust policy in place, it might still be necessary to delve further into your estate planning. A will controls the flow of your personal property, but it does not control what passes by beneficiary designation (life insurance, IRAs, annuities, retirement plans, Transfer on Death agreements), by contract (joint tenancy with rights of survivorship), or by trust. While a will is an important aspect of estate planning, you should also focus on establishing financials goals, understanding what must be done to accomplish the goals, planning the actions needed to accomplish the goals and taking those needed actions.

To plan for a secure retirement and the future financial security of your family after you are gone, getting the right advice from a combination of your legal adviser and a qualified financial adviser is vitally important. Your estate planning advisers need to understand annuities and other investments, income tax laws (federal and state), estate tax laws (federal and state), life insurance products, property and liability insurance, and state laws concerning guardianship, conservator-ship, and testacy and intestacy,.

Estate planning is for managing your wealth and how it will be used during your lifetime and distributed at your death. A solid estate plan will help you achieve your financial goals during your lifetime and protect and preserve property you leave for your spouse, children and grandchildren, disabled heirs, or your charitable interests.

Just bought my first SMA and was very happy to have gone through Immediate I found them in an article in the Wall Street Journal. As a first time buyer, I had a lot of questions. But to their credit, they did a great job answering my questions directly or getting the right answers from the right people when they needed to.
