Life Insurance Estate Planning Lawyer Norwalk CT
Life Insurance Estate Planning Law Firm
Serving Connecticut and New York
At the Richard A. Sarner, Esq., we know that one of the most effective estate planning tools is insurance. The effective use of life insurance can be a good way to leverage current assets and protect against risk. The careful application of insurance can ensure that a trust is fully funded or allow for the seamless succession of your small business.
Allowing for the periodic payments of insurance premiums can be the difference between creating a trust that would have sufficient assets to do what it is designed to do, and one under-funded. Other estate planning applications of life insurance include:
- planning for payment of estate taxes
- succession planning for family or closely held businesses
- replacing family wealth—when funds have been diverted for charitable causes, life insurance policies can fund wealth replacement trusts
