Retirement Accounts

Understand how to fund your living trust by learning why and how to transfer your assets to your revocable living trusts.

A basic estate plan is essential for everyone. At a minimum, everyone should have three estate planning items in place: an up-to-date will or trust, a durable power of attorney, and updated beneficiary forms.

Single people face unique estate planning issues that require advanced planning, time, and the help of an experienced professional.

Almost everyone has some kind of retirement account—whether a 401(k), IRA, or pension—so proper estate planning for these funds is essential.

Careful estate planning can ensure that inherited IRAs remain safe from your beneficiary’s creditors. In most cases, establishing a standalone retirement trust will protect your assets without restricting your beneficiary’s access to them.

The amount you will need to save for retirement depends on many factors including your anticipated lifestyle and how many years you have until retirement.
