Believe it or not, you have an estate. In fact, nearly everyone does. Your estate is comprised of everything you own— your car, home, other real estate, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, furniture, personal possessions. No matter how large or how modest, everyone has an estate and something in common—you can’t take it with you when you die.
When that happens—and it is a “when” and not an “if”—you probably want to control how those things are given to the people or organizations you care most about. To ensure your wishes are carried out, you need to provide instructions stating whom you want to receive something of yours, what you want them to receive, and when they are to receive it. You will, of course, want this to happen with the least amount paid in taxes, legal fees, and court costs.
That is estate planning—making a plan in advance and naming whom you want to receive the things you own after you die.
At Adkins Financial & Associates, our mission is to assist you along this process. Life insurance, annuities, wills & trusts are all vehicles which may aid in protecting, accumulating and finally passing your assets on to your heirs the best way possible.
An annuity is a type of policy issued by an insurance company that allows you to save money for retirement. The money you pay in can be either a lump sum or a number of payments. These contributions then earn interest, generally tax-deferred, and after a period of time, provide you with a stream of income.
Some of the reasons to purchase an annuity include:
Your money grows tax-deferred. This allows your account to grow faster because you earn interest on dollars that would otherwise be paid in taxes.
Annuities have the ability to avoid probate. By naming a beneficiary other than your estate, your annuity avoids the expense and delays of probate and maintains your family's privacy.
Guaranteed minimum interest rate.
Competitive interest rates that can be guaranteed for multiple years
An annuity can be designed to provide an income stream that you cannot outlive and once a contract is annuitized, the monthly payment can never decrease. (Not applicable for an interest-only option)
Long Term Care
For many Americans — in particular the 70 million-strong baby boom generation born between 1946 and 1964 — the phrase "long-term care" (LTC) is achieving new urgency. The oldest of the boomers are now less than a decade away from their 80s, the age at which many will start to need help in performing the activities of daily living (ADL).
What exactly is long-term care? The term comprises a host of services that vary widely. They range from home care and adult day care to residential care in assisted living or nursing home facilities. But long-term care is generally defined as hands-on assistance provided for an extended period of time to people (of any age, though older people are the primary users) who can't take care of themselves due to a prolonged disability, illness or cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer's disease. About 70 percent of individuals over the age of 65 will require at least some type of long-term care services during their lifetime. Adkins Financial & Associates can help you design an affordable plan which will protect your assets in the event of needed care.
