Retirement can be a confusing time in a person’s life.
While most estate planning focuses on physical property, like your home, and liquid assets, such as investment accounts, retirement plans can actually make up a large portion of one’s estate. Due to the specific tax rules governing these assets at death, you must plan carefully to ensure these funds are integrated properly into your estate distribution plans and tax savings strategies.
