While larger estates may have higher attendant costs attached as a direct consequence of various levels of planning that are implemented incrementally, the same is not necessarily true for the average family. Rather, the average family is generally hoping to avoid probate and secure the care of their loved ones once they are gone. Learn why this distinction may be important to you and your family on our next show.

These days many people choose a revocable living trust instead of relying on a will or joint ownership in their estate plan. They like the cost and time savings, plus the added control over assets that a living trust can provide. However, if you have signed your living trust document but haven’t changed titles and beneficiary designations, you will not avoid probate. Your living trust can only control the assets you put into it.

Learn the important details on this week’s show.

Most people put “buy more life insurance” on the very bottom of the “things that excite me” list. But if you’ve realized that life insurance is often the most cost effective answer to several very important problems, you have probably also heard talk of an irrevocable life insurance trust. If you’re the owner of a policy and the insured person under the policy, the proceeds will be part of your taxable estate. An ILIT (pronounced EYE-let) is viewed by some as a time-tested and IRS approved way to avoid this scenario and protect those proceeds from the estate tax.

Join us this Tuesday to learn more on the Bottled Business Sense Show.

The purpose of a land trust is to allow one to have the legal title to his property held by another person, or trustee while retaining all of the rights and privileges of property ownership (the beneficial interest). The trustee acts only upon the beneficiaries’ direction. The property owner still retains all rights, such as the right to possession, to collect rent, mortgage the property, homestead exemption, and any other benefit he now has.

Join Bill and Rick to learn how, when and why a land trust can be a valuable estate planning tool.

The answer to whether or not the beneficiary of an estate has any say in the management of that estate depends on the document under which the beneficiary is to acquire rights in the decedent’s property (i.e. Living Trust versus a Will). Likewise, the say of a beneficiary in the management of Trust property will be different before and after the death of the Settlor of a Trust. In this show, Bill and Rick explore some of these distinctions and alert eligible beneficiaries about exactly what their expectations should be.
