Are your financial and estate planning documents
in sync with each other? Lifetime issues need to be considered such as
incapacity, health care directives, powers of attorney, new CT trust laws,
and estate questions such as:
1) What happens if you don’t have a will?
2) How does the SECURE Act affect stretch IRAs?
3) How will your assets flow to your heirs?
4) What can you do to make sure you have the right team in place before
an unexpected incapacity or a death?
