Frequently Asked Questions

What does wealth mean to you? What are your circumstances and opportunities? There’s no one-size-fits-all formula. But we can help you build a strategy that works for you.

Wealth isn’t just for retirement anymore. Near-term goals, such as college, starting a business or buying that vacation home on the lake, also require the ability to accumulate and access wealth. We can show you how to build and fund a wealth strategy that will help achieve your goals, now and in the future.

As a general rule, you should review your will every five years. In addition, certain life events should trigger an update – including marriage, childbirth, divorce and the death of a spouse.

Without a will, the court will decide how to distribute your assets to your family. Your personal wishes will not be considered, and it’s likely that your estate will be reduced by unnecessary costs and often avoidable taxes. Don’t put it off. A will is something you may need.

A Durable Power of Attorney can prevent forced or expensive guardianship if you become incapacitated. A Living Will enables to you provide instructions about life supports, should you suffer an incurable disease. A Health Care Power of Attorney empowers a loved one to make healthcare decisions on your behalf if you aren’t able. A Living Trust generally avoids the public probate process and expense.

Leaving assets to special needs children could disqualify them from receiving government benefits, such as Medicaid, Supplemental Social Security Income or Social Security Disability Income Insurance. One potential solution is to leave the assets to a Special Needs Trust for the benefit of the child. Structured properly, this trust can enable the child to qualify for government benefits.

Through philanthropic planning, it’s possible to optimize the benefits of charitable giving for yourself, your family and your favorite charities. We can work with you to develop a strategy that may save taxes, while helping to maximize the value of your gift.

Taxes can significantly impact the accumulation of wealth. Since it’s impossible to predict what tax rates will be in the future, a growth strategy built around tax diversification may be appropriate – with assets split among taxable, tax-deferred and tax-free vehicles.
