Family Succession Planning

1:00 p.m. Central Time
When most people hear “estate planning,” they think of planning to avoid estate taxes.

There is a lot more to estate planning than taxes. That’s why family succession planning better describes this process. It includes decisions about who will receive which assets, when they will receive those assets, and who will have authority to make financial, medical, and end of life decisions for you if you can’t.
