Today’s Audio MASTERCLASS: End of the Year Estate Planning for Entrepreneurs with Brian Price and Jennifer Gligoric
[1:33]– Brian and Jennifer share something interesting about themselves that most people do not know.
- Brian has a 2nd degree black belt in karate and has been practicing martial arts for about 10 years.
- Jennifer was a drum major and she can play all woodwind instruments and all melodic percussion.
[2:43] – Jennifer differentiates between a Final Will and Testament and an Estate Plan
- A Will is not like a full Estate Plan. An Estate Plan is more comprehensive and usually involves a Trust.
- The idea of an Estate Plan is to avoid probate.
- It is better to have an Estate Plan rather than just a Will.
[9:44] – What is probate, and how does one avoid it?
- Probate is when there is no allocation of assets when someone passes away; allocation is done by the Government on their own timeline.
- You can avoid probate by having a Will or having an Affidavit of Heirship.
[14:43] – Jennifer talks about having a Pour Over Will
- You can use a Pour Over Will within an Estate Plan; it is a powerful tool because it is created with a Trust.
- A Pour Over Will can catch the properties that may not have been named; it will automatically go to the Trustee of the Trust to avoid probate.
[16:04] – Jennifer talks about beneficiary nightmares and why you cannot forget your Estate Plan when you have life changes
- A beneficiary is the person who gets whatever assets you own after you pass.
- Have an outline and update your Will or your Estate Plan, otherwise it can turn into a nightmare.
- Be protected. Protect yourself and your assets and have a reliable Trustee.
[24:08] – Why coordinating your trusts and retirement plans are crucial to avoid accelerated taxes.
- It depends on the setup of your structures and the type of trust and retirement plan you have
[27:24] – Brian’s parting piece of guidance
- Understand what is available to you before something happens sooner than you think it will
- It is better to settle your Estate plan now
- The process of Estate Planning is simply anticipating and arranging, and when you do it properly you will have less stress.
