Planning A Financial Estate
An estate plan, which ensures that goals are met after someone dies, typically includes: a will; assignment of power of attorney; and a living will or health-care proxy (medical power of attorney). Everyone has a unique goal for their estate, from providing gifts to leaving a legacy to their community or faith-based institution. Our relationship with Kirby Moss provides us a unique advantage in helping our clients create a comprehensive plan for their retirement.
Sharing the Wealth
Through our relationship with Kirby Moss, we can introduce you to the benefits of Private or Community Foundations, Charitable Remainder Trusts, Donor-Advised Funds or Gift Annuities. Gifting strategies at end-of-life are of particular importance and may include UTMAs, Section 529 prepayment of tuition and college savings plans, and other gifts such as family limited partnerships or Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts. Incapacity planning addresses the presence of a durable power of attorney or successor trustee of a revocable living trust.
