Asset Review, Tracking, and Continuous Funding

Funding of your initial assets into your trust was handled at the time your trust was prepared. Our team regularly reviews the character and ownership of your assets and provides you with an annual report to ensure that all of your assets are properly funded into your trust and that all beneficiary designations are coordinated with your overall plan.

Estate Planning Document Updates

We believe that estate planning is a process and not a transaction. In our experience, the only was to ensure that an estate plan accomplishes your wishes, is to realize that there will be changes in your life and changes in the law. Our Auto-Pilot Planning Program provides updating your documents as needed to help ensure that your estate plan stays current and consistent with your intent and the changes in the law. This ongoing process will ensure that your plan is up to date and will provide you with peace of mind that things will be taken care of when you pass. By serving as your trust advisor, we are able to assist you in updating your trust when it comes to changes in the tax laws, regulations, and judicial decisions even when you are unable to do so.

Family Care Meeting

The family care meetings provide an opportunity when needed for all of us to sit down and understand your plan with your trusted family members and professional advisors who will execute your plan. Any questions that you or your family members may have of your advisors can be answered at that meeting and, if necessary, any potential issues will be addressed.
