Estate Plan Key Component - Protecting the Family from Money

When we die it is often said that we need an estate plan that encompasses a will or a trust.  There are also other documents like medical directives and power of attorney.  The establishment of a proper plan is important but, in my opinion, a critical component that can easily be overlooked is protecting the family from money and themselves.Money, whether it’s from an estate or a life insurance death benefit can have catastrophic consequences on the family if the plan is not adequate with clear intent and leadership. A plan should clearly define the intent and the wishes of the...

The Paradox of Aging - Four Bucket Strategy

There is a lot of talk about aging, longevity, and the fear of running out of money.  There are people at every corner that will advise you to save more money and to prepare for illness, care needs, and ultimately unexpected longevity.  I personally don’t buy into saving an additional couple percent of your income, hiring the better advisor, or coming up with the ultimate annuity as the end all be all solution.   While these items may incrementally have significance over time as part of an overall plan, we should not lose sight of basic planning and wise decisions tha...

Retirement, the Big Picture

Retirement is supposed to be a time for mental expansion and relaxation after a productive career, not a stressful experience or a grand lesson in frugality.  The path you or your family members take will be based, in most cases, on planning.  The cost in time, effort, and money of even a basic plan far outweighs the cost of having no plan. Planning is actually elementary.  It really comes down to living within our means and nothing more. The problem arises from the standard of living that we have set for ourselves when we are still working.  Once we retire and s...

The focus has been changed dramatically to benefit the planners. I have so many clients in the seventies that are in fine...
