Estate & Legacy Planning

Confidence for the Future

Do you know what will happen to your assets after your death? It’s a difficult question to think about, but estate and legacy planning is essential for making sure your wishes are known and respected.

Answers to Tough Questions

Estate planning helps answer difficult questions, so you have confidence:

  • Will my beneficiaries receive the assets I want them to have?
  • What happens if I’m unable to make financial decisions on my own?
  • Should I create an advance health care directive?
  • Will my beneficiaries have to pay taxes on their inheritance?
  • Do I need a will?
  • Should I set up a trust?

What is an Estate Plan?

An estate plan is a document that outlines how you want your wealth and assets (real estate, cash, etc.) to be transferred to your heirs or distributed after your death. The plan could include charitable giving or strategies to reduce estate taxes for your beneficiaries. A sound estate plan will protect your loved ones from the anxiety and stress of a lengthy probate process.

  • Marriage
  • Divorce
  • After a spouse’s death
  • When wealth or assets have accumulated

How Estate & Legacy Planning Works

The estate and legacy planning process begins with a review of all of your assets. Then there’s a discussion of your goals and your wishes for how your property should be distributed after your death. The discussion may also include the types of insurance and coverage amounts you need. Finally, your financial planner will recommend tax-efficient wealth-transfer strategies to pursue your goals.

These could include:

  • Establishing an estate
  • Creating a will
  • Trust setup
  • Naming Beneficiaries
  • Naming Guardians
  • Naming Conservators
  • Wealth-transfer strategies
  • Reduce estate taxes
  • Selecting investments
  • Advance directives
  • Healthcare power of attorney
  • Financial power of attorney
