Avoid probate with a Living Trust. Probate can delay assets going to your heirs for months or even years. Life insurance proceeds may be included in your estate upon death if your net worth exceeds certain thresholds. Consider having your life insurance policies owned by an Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust (ILIT). Living Trusts, ILIT’s, Charitable Trusts, etc, should be an integral part of your estate planning. Our Advisors will work with your tax or legal professional to assess your needs and make sure your estate has a smooth transition to the next generation.
*For legacy planning please consult with your attorney and/or tax advisor.
