5 Costly Mistakes Families Make With Their Wills & Trusts
Will Your Spouse and Children be left with a disastrous nightmare?
Mistake #1 – Loved Ones Fall Victim to Second Marriages, Divorces, and Lawsuits too often! The inheritance you’ve worked so hard to leave your children can easily walk out the door due to poor drafting and outright distributions.
Mistake #2 – Not Protecting Yourself in Case of Disability. Most plans are designed to work after your death. Yet, you are 6 times more likely to become disabled before you die.
Mistake #3 – No Probate Protection. Most plans are improperly funded and families are left dealing with a long, costly bureaucratic nightmare after the death of a loved one.
Mistake #4 – Nursing Home Poverty. The average cost in the Twin Cities for a nursing home stay is over $155,000 per year.
Mistake #5 – Family Feuds. No plan to prevent family feuds over money and possessions that have sentimental value.
Who Should Attend This Webinar?
If you don’t currently have a plan in place to protect your family and assets… or if it’s been at least three years since you’ve last looked at your old estate plan.
On this webinar you’ll learn:
- The advantages and disadvantages of both wills and trusts.
- How to keep your affairs private and your loved ones out of court if you become disabled and can’t speak for yourself. Hint: Not all Powers of Attorney are valid!
- All about probate and what steps can you take now to help your family avoid this expensive and time-consuming legal process.
- If you will you owe estate taxes and how to help your heirs minimize or even avoid “death” taxes after your passing.
- Easy strategies to protect your children’s inheritance from being seized if they get divorced, sued or file bankruptcy in the future.
- How to preserve your estate for your children should you pass away and your surviving spouse gets remarried (without a plan, your family’s inheritance will legally go to the new husband or wife!).
- How parents (and grandparents!) of children with special needs can plan for a lifetime of care without jeopardizing eligibility for important benefits like Medicaid or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
