Though it may be challenging to think about your legacy or you believe you have years before you need to consider it, preparing now gives you and your beneficiaries peace of mind should the unthinkable occur unexpectedly. Cummings Wealth Management can assist you with devising strategies that allow you to make the most of your legacy.
Though drawing up a will is a critical element of a solid estate plan, it isn’t the only aspect involved in estate planning.

By taking appropriate measures, you can reduce the stress and financial burdens for your loved ones and ensure your wishes are followed. Without documentation, the state determines how to allocate your assets upon your passing. Additionally, you can take steps to reduce how much your beneficiaries pay in taxes on their inheritance.
