It is a comprehensive, dynamic, ongoing process that is meant to honor and celebrate your life. All too often, the estate planning conversation is limited to “Where do you want your money to go when you die?” Instead, the internal WealthSource team can help you craft a legacy, transition your wealth into the capable hands of the next generation, and do more good in the world.
Death and disability are difficult topics to consider. However, the truth is that your family’s life will be forever changed if and when something happens to you. Left unplanned and unexamined, those changes could be financially and personally devastating to your loved ones. Let the internal WealthSource team identify potential risks and guide your conversations with attorneys.
Beyond legal documents, you need a clear plan for how to manage your wealth today, how to distribute your estate after your death, and how to pass on your core values and life lessons to the next generation. We want to minimize the administrative hardship for your loved ones and maximize the value that’s passed on beyond yourself to change lives and do good.
Transferring wealth from an estate to a beneficiary can be a complex, expensive, and lengthy process. Many legacy plans rely on strategies designed to lower the tax burden on your heirs and leverage gifting opportunities during your lifetime. Our internal WealthSource team will work alongside your attorneys to help ensure that your wishes for your family and assets are captured accurately.
Giving back isn’t just for the ultra-wealthy. Philanthropy at any level can add meaning to life, teach the next generation about the importance of aligning values with giving, and change the world for the better.
