Financial Planning for Inheritance

Receiving an inheritance or life insurance proceeds can be quite overwhelming. The idea of receiving a large sum of money may seem exciting, but the reality can be much different. Often someone close to you has passed away and you are grieving. You might be pressured to share money with relatives, or sense that those around you have ulterior motives. You aren’t sure who to trust or what to do.

During this transition, it is important to seek the advice of a trustworthy financial planning firm that specializes in financial planning for those who have received an inheritance. At Urist Financial and Retirement Planning, we want to guide you to make wise financial decisions that strive to help protect not only your money, but also your future. That is why we offer financial planning services for inheritance situations; to help you manage your financial transition after receiving an inheritance.

Urist Financial and Retirement Planning can help you through the process by seeking to provide accurate information on the inheritance by analyzing:

  • What type of assets you will receive (house, other real estate, a business, stocks and bonds, retirement plans, IRAs or life insurance)
  • The value of the inheritance
  • When the assets will be available (immediately or distributed over time)
  • Tax liabilities associated with the inheritance
