Introduction to Estate Planning

You don’t have to be a millionaire to have an estate. Your estate covers consists of everything you own of value - home, cars, cash, clothing and furniture, investment, retirement accounts, pensions and items you have accumulated throughout your lifetime. You’ll gain a better understanding of estate planning including: death and estate taxes; wills and trusts; probate; choosing an executor, lifetime giving exclusion, marital deductions and tax-free inheritance. Become better prepared to discuss your estate planning issues with your professional advisors and learn how to preserve and manage your assets to avoid expensive delays and legal challenges.
