Estate Planning Done Right with Asset Protection Wealth Management's Gary Garrison
By: AP Wealth Management
Asset Protection Wealth Management President and Founder Gary Garrison has some tips on making sure your affairs are in order through proper estate planning. "Make sure you have named beneficiaries on all life insurance policies, annuities, 401K and IRA accounts," says Garrison. "This will help you to avoid probate time and expenses." Individuals also want to make sure that bank accounts have updated beneficiaries on file. This is called a POD or TOD, depending on the bank, which stands for "payable on death" or "transfer on death." This is a free service to set up for customers. "If you haven't reviewed your beneficiaries in a while, it would be very advantageous to make sure you are leaving your accounts to whom you intended for your money to go," Garrison explains. "Remember, without a will, your state will decide for you who gets what. Also, see a lawyer and get a will and possibly a trust established, depending on your personal situation. This will ensure that your financial affairs are clearly arranged according to your wishes."
