Seminar Podcast/Slide Presentation (December 8, 2011)


On December 8 we made an estate planning presentation to clients,  friends of the firm, and our new neighbors at the Matrix Corporate Center.  The title:  Planning Your Whole Estate (Coordinating Life Insurance, Employee Benefits and Other Nonprobate Property with the Rest of Your Estate Plan).

A question and answer period followed.  One of the more challenging questions, relating to the ability to roll over  lump sum distributions from retirement plans, inspired a post that you can find here:  Lump Sum Rollover of Retirement Account Not as Simple as Expected.

Although a podcast/slide show is not quite as effective (you miss out on the questions and answers) or fun (you miss out on the food, refreshments and good-natured conversation) as the actual in-person presentation, we thought those who could not attend might appreciate the podcast/slide show as presented below in eight parts. 

The Podcast/Slide Presentation

We hope you find the presentation helpful.

Planning Your Whole Estate Part 1 (your will; probate property vs. nonprobate property)

Planning Your Whole Estate Part 2 (common estate planning mistakes; life insurance beneficiary designations; trusts; guardianships; “in trust for accounts”, retirement accounts; joint property; protection from long term care costs; simple wills)

Planning Your Whole Estate Part 3  (jointly owned property; “in trust for” accounts; life insurance beneficiary and ownership)

Planning Your Whole Estate Part 4 (taxation of life insurance; retirement plan accounts; special tax problems relating to individual retirement accounts and other similar accounts)

Planning Your Whole Estate Part 5 (continuation of special tax problems relating to individual retirement accounts and other similar accounts)

Planning Your Whole Estate Part 6 (continuation of special tax problems relating to individual retirement accounts and other similar accounts; trusts as beneficiary of IRA; beneficiary designation forms)

Planning Your Whole Estate Part 7 (revocable living trusts; reasons to consider: asset management during disability and probate avoidance)
