Think again


Слайд 3

Estate planning is for everyone, NOT JUST THE WEALTHY


Слайд 4

Here are a few of the biggest misconceptions associated with estate planning


Слайд 5

1 I’m not wealthy enough.


Слайд 6

1 I’m not wealthy enough. Estate planning covers far more than just your finances


Слайд 7

If you have minor children, you need a guardianship to ensure they’re properly cared for in the event of your death or incapacitation


Слайд 8

This is a decision you don’t want the state to make for you


Слайд 9

2 I’m not wealthy enough to justify an estate plan.


Слайд 10

Who would make your medical decisions if you are unable to communicate your wishes? 2 I’m not wealthy enough to justify an estate plan.

Слайд 18

3 I’m young. What’s the hurry? A quick Google search reveals thousands of well known people – celebrities, sports figures, artists, inventors, investors – who all died in their thirties

That $5,120,000 number you’re hearing so much about is the magic number for 2014 for estate taxes 4 I’ve heard that unless my estate is worth $5.12 million, I don’t need an estate plan.


Слайд 23

That number does take into account any State estate taxes that may be due upon death


Слайд 24

If your state has a state estate tax, the number is typically much lower than $5,120,000


Слайд 25

Even if you don’t have to worry about an estate tax, estate tax planning is typically is altogether different from an estate plan

These dynamics don’t address how your assets are distributed, especially when the surviving spouse passes

It’s important that you put into place adequate mechanisms for a surviving spouse


Слайд 36

7 I have a will. Isn’t that enough?
