Estate Planning

If you don’t know where you are going you might wind up someplace else.
– Yogi Berra

We’re constantly being told that we should have saved millions of dollars for retirement, otherwise our old age will be lived in poverty and we’ll be a burden to society and our loved ones. However, consider that when we were young a decent house cost $12,000, a car cost $2,000 and a good salary was $5,000 a year. How could we have possibly known that nursing home care can now cost upwards of $12,000 a month? How could we plan for that?

The three legs of the stool of financial independence – savings, Social Security and pensions – are being sawed off, especially pensions.

It is possible to plan for old age without giving up today’s pleasures. With careful planning, you won’t have to give up your home to support Mom.  It is possible to leave a legacy, and not live in poverty to help your incapacitated spouse.

We can show you how a comprehensive estate plan can bring surprising benefits. These benefits include saving tens of thousands of dollars, unifying families, leaving a legacy and providing for a comfortable old age.
