Estate & Trust Services

“It’s important that we are at the table with our client’s financial planner and attorney, or other advisors. We need to be part of the ‘A Team.’ ” 

 

– Jordon N. Rosen, CPA, AEP, Director

 

An estate plan doesn’t just protect your heirs and minimize estate taxes.  It clearly outlines your most specific intentions. Do you think you don’t have to worry about having an estate plan because your estate is valued less than the federal exclusion amount? Not so. If you don’t know where your estate is going, it will never get there. Let us help you make a plan, and review it every five years.

We not only listen to you, we collaborate with your entire advisory team: your attorney, investment advisor, and insurance professional – with a goal to help put together a plan for living.

    • Avoiding the Hardship of Correcting Hardship Distribution Violations

      Administering hardship distributions correctly is important to prevent the hardship of completing a correction of an error in administration. Often, plan officials assume that their third party administrator is collecting all the information necessary for the approval and proper processing of a hardship, when that is not always the case.
