Forming Your Life Insurance Strategy
Life insurance can be a useful tool to help pay for estate tax liabilities, to set up trusts, and for other planning uses. However, the way you allocate ownership and beneficiaries can have a significant effect on whether your insurance is considered as part of your estate for tax purposes.
Echler Solomon Feng can help you decide which mode of insurance would be most suitable for your specific circumstances and help you determine the ownership and beneficiary designations.
There is no guarantee that any investment, financial, or estate planning approach will be successful.
