Estate & Tax Planning in Denver
Estate and Asset Protection Solutions: Protecting Your Life Savings and Legacy
One of the most difficult parts of retirement planning can be preparing for the distribution of your estate (everything that you own including life insurance death benefits) after your death. No one like to think about this inevitable event, much less plan for it.
Estate planning is the process of setting forth binding instructions so that when you die, your estate is distributed according to your wishes, with a minimum of bother or expense for your heirs. Estate planning doesn’t have to focus so much on death; but rather on life. Think of it as a final act of love.
Your wealth, whether large or small, represents a lifetime of hard work and smart investing. It also represents the courageous decisions, fiscal responsibility and personal sacrifices you have made throughout the years.
At Townsend along with estate planning attorneys, can help you formulate a plan that can provide:
- Lifetime income to your heirs
- Benefit your favorite charities
- Avoid probate
- Protect your estate from spendthrift beneficiaries, divorces, bankruptcies and lawsuits
- Stretching your IRA, meaning to keep your IRA(s) as an IRA for two or three generations and avoid income taxes associated with lump sum distributions.
Talk to your Townsend advisor to help you start this process.
