It’s a common misconception that estate planning is only for the wealthiest one percent. In reality, estate planning helps you easily transition assets to loved ones while streamlining the settlement of an estate. Financial services firms like Dinnin & Parkins Associates can guide you through the intricacies of estate preparation; planning ahead to reduce some of the financial discomfort of your passing.
Passing without a will or trust leaves loved ones ensnared in the intestacy laws of the state in which the property resides, all while they struggle to settle your debts and divide remaining assets. A financial planner can help each step of the way from outlining final plans to acting as a sounding board for the difficult conversations of expressing last wishes to loved ones.
You must also choose an executor of your estate. Depending upon family dynamics, this could be an easy or difficult decision. Either way, it should only be made after considerable thought and deliberation. Upon your passing, Dinnin & Parkins Associates will work directly with the executor of your estate to easily transition assets to chosen beneficiaries.
Among the many benefits of estate planning, tax advantages are often overlooked. Through proper preparation, your beneficiaries can potentially be shielded from a sizable tax liability. When preparing your estate, we consider all of the tax implications associated with your investments.
Your estate is your legacy. Make sure it has a proper plan.
