Many of our clients have experienced a life-changing circumstance in their lifetime such as marriage, divorce, birth of a child, or death of a loved one. We assist individuals and families in pre- and post-planning by providing advice in gifting techniques and related strategies.
In conjunction with legal and financial advisers, we ensure wills, trusts, and health care documents are properly in place. For pre- and post-mortem planning options relating to family members and beneficiaries, we review beneficiary designations on life insurance, annuities, and retirement accounts. With high income rates on trust returns, we assist trustees and family members in determining the best time to make distributions from trusts.
