When a person dies intestate, (without a will or legacy plan), it can have serious implications for their family and loved ones. In cases such as these, families lose their right to manage the desired division of assets and the courts take over. Newly expanded legacy planning services at Goldstone Financial Group ensure an individual’s property and investments are protected from court-imposed asset allocation and are safeguarded from over-taxation and creditor claims.

Statistics reveal close to 60 percent of Americans believe having a will is important; however, only 33 percent of Americans have one in place. Without a will or legacy plan, the deceased’s family must attempt to legally claim their right to manage the division of assets. Comprehensive legacy planning services at Gladstone Financial Group in St. Charles are designed to protect families from these types of ordeals by offering inheritance planning, tax planning, IRA guidance, and the proper preparation living wills and trusts for the financial health of future generations.
“Estate planning, also known as legacy planning, safeguards your family and loved ones by protecting your assets, minimizing the burden of estate taxes, and preventing the stress and conflict that can emerge when families attempt to settle a loved one’s affairs on their own,” says a Goldstone Financial Group spokesperson. “Legacy planning ensures the smooth transfer of assets to beneficiaries according to your wishes.”
