Why Asset Protection Planning is so Important
It is important that you make plans to protect your assets because:
- There could be many potential sources of risk to your wealth: Almost everyone faces some risks that could result in a loss of asses. This could be creditor claims if you hit a financial snag or costly medical care bills or a risk your business will go into debt or get a judgement against it. If you don’t identify the risks, then you won’t know what you need to protect against and you are very vulnerable to losses.
- The chances you’ll lose your hard-earned assets can increase as you age: As you get older, the biggest threat to your assets often becomes the possibility that you will need to move into a nursing home. If you require costly nursing home care, you may find yourself in a situation where you have to pay out of pocket because Medicare won’t cover a nursing home and neither will private insurance in most circumstances. Unless you need skilled nursing care, you may have to pay thousands of dollars monthly out of your own money for nursing home bills. But, if you work with an asset protection planning lawyer, you could avoid this by making a plan to qualify for Medicaid without impoverishing yourself first.
- You deserve to leave a legacy: You owe it to your heirs or beneficiaries to take steps to protect your assets from being lost in case of your incapacity or from being reduced due to estate tax and high costs of the probate process after your death.
Depending upon the specifics of your situation, there may also be many other reasons why asset protection planning is vitally important in your particular case. For example, some people face a much more substantial risk of loss than others. Frank & Kraft will help you to ensure that you know about the particular risks that could affect you so you can take the right steps to protect your wealth.
