Estate Planning Guide
Estate planning is important for all people and not just for senior citizens. Preparing documents, outlining procedures to follow and assigning assets to the right beneficiaries is essential in estate planning. In North Carolina, if you don’t have a Will, current state law will determine who receives your assets and in what portions. Not having a set plan can quickly become a costly nightmare for survivors or responsible individuals named after a loved one’s death.
What You Need to Know About the Secure Act
The Setting Every Community Up for Retirement (or SECURE) Act is intended to make it easier for Americans to save for retirement and decrease the percentage of us who outlive retirement funds. It was signed into law on December 20, 2019, and most for its provisions became effective January 1, 2020. Some changes in the act may result in unexpected tax bills for beneficiaries.
