Ensuring that your estate planning wishes are realized

Throughout one's lifetime, change is a constant. From the birth of a child to the day that child graduates college or welcomes his or her own child into the world, life's ever-evolving circumstances force us to constantly evaluate where we are and what we need to do to either stay there or reach our goals.

Heirs advised to seek advice and assistance regarding inheritance assets

For many older Americans, a key estate planning goal centers on passing wealth and property down to children and grandchildren. Over the course of the next three to four decades, financial experts estimate that baby boomers will pass on upwards of $30 trillion to heirs. For those individuals on the receiving end of an inheritance, it's wise to take steps to safeguard against potential pitfalls and to seek the advice and counsel of a financial and estate planning professional.

Are you single? Why estate planning is so important

During 2014 the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that, for the first time in recorded U.S. history, the percentage of unmarried adults surpassed those who are married. While nationally, an estimated 50.2 percent of U.S. adults are single, the number of single adults in large metropolitan areas tends to be higher. In New York City, for example, a survey by NerdWallet found that 57.84 percent of the adult population is single. This percentage was significantly higher in other large cities including Washington D.C., with 70.27 percent and Boston where 69.32 percent of adults are single.

Planning for the distribution of IRA assets

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the current life expectancy in the U.S. is roughly 78 years. Additionally, a recent Gallup poll revealed that the average retirement age in the U.S. is 62. This means that, on average, an individual must ensure that he or she has enough retirement savings to account for both the planned and unplanned events during the 16 or so years after he or she retires.
