The process of planning your estate involves many steps beyond having a will or a trust.
Prepare a comprehensive list of all assets.
Determine how you would want your assets managed if you could not do so yourself.
Outline how you would want your estate ultimately distributed.
With this general plan in mind, consult a Busey Wealth Management advisor to strategize how to accomplish your goals. Our experienced team of Certified Public Accountants and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioners are available to coordinate with your accountant and attorney to implement a comprehensive plan addressing current and future needs, as well as your wishes after you’re gone.
Busey Wealth Management can provide peace of mind knowing your intentions will be spelled out and implemented accordingly and the assurance that loved ones will be provided for and adequately protected by your efforts.
Working with a team that makes your priorities and desires into a real plan is critical, and you can expect no less from Busey Wealth Management. We provide the initial guidance you need and can work with your personal attorney to draft the legal documents that will carry out your intentions.
Our continued relationship will provide you with the comfort of knowing you have taken the necessary steps to provide and protect for the here and now, as well as provide for your heirs in the future.
Review the titling of your assets to determine what makes sense now and will accomplish your future wishes. Your asset titles and beneficiary designations need to work hand-in-hand with your estate planning documents to achieve your goals.
Determine a Power of Attorney for Property and a Medical Power of Attorney and create a Living Will in addition to the traditional will and or trust documents.
Regularly review your legal documents to assure your wishes are adequately reflected and the provisions are appropriate under the current laws and tax regulations.
Use your plan to provide for and protect your beneficiaries, which may include a non-citizen spouse, a non-marital significant other, various members of blended families and those who have special needs.
Maximize the amounts passed on to your heirs while minimizing potential estate taxes.
Consider the benefits of gifting, whether during your life or through your estate documents.
