Most people want to know that no matter what the size of their estate, that when they pass away their assets will go to the people they choose, at the lowest possible rate of taxation. They want this done within a reasonable time frame for the least amount of costs, transfer fees, legal fees and arguments among the survivors.

They also want a competitive rate of return on their assets that are set aside for legacy planning with little or no risk. People do not wish to have their inheritance taxed in their heirs higher tax bracket.

If you are between 60 and 85, with money you have set aside in CDs, passbooks, savings accounts, retirement accounts and even annuities for future generations or charity, there are strategies you can utilize to pass along these funds, income and estate tax free, while bypassing probate, with guarantees.

These strategies should only be implemented on funds that you will never need and you are looking to leave a guaranteed legacy.
