A Last Will and Testament may not be the only document you need when it comes to managing your estate.
Estate Planning is the foundation for your overall financial plan. It controls how your assets are titled and what happens not only while you're alive, but also when you pass.
Approximately half of the U.S. population does not have an estate plan, and the other half that does is likely missing a key component. Often times we find errors, fragmented planning or no plans at all. Those very reasons are why we have a special court system in our country and thousands of attorneys who specialize in figuring out what you wanted, but the question is, at what cost?
Fortunately there are strategies to mitigate -and often eliminate- these pitfalls. However, the plan must be in place prior to the event or crisis.
At The Trust Group Financial Services we have relationships with the top attorneys in the Tampa Bay area, and by joining our services, we put together a comprehensive plan that fulfills a number of objectives. The plan's goals include avoiding the cost, delay and publicity of the probate court system. To facilitate administration of your assets in the event you become incapacitated. To mitigate or eliminate Federal Estate Taxes (The Death Tax). And finally, to ensure the plan is incorporated into your overall financial plan to provide you and your family with care, comfort, maintenance, support and a lasting legacy.

SOCIAL SECURITY GUIDANCE
As baby boomers transition from the accumulation phase to the distribution phase of their life, they are looking for ways to continue to maintain their current lifestyle with income throughout retirement. Unfortunately for many, the income they receive from Social Security and pensions alone are not enough. In addition, many retirees take Social Security at the wrong time.
Likely one of the main reasons for this is a lack of education with regards to their filing options. Social Security benefits seem simple from the outside but inside are a number of different options that could directly affect you and your family for life.
How do you know which option will be best for you? A key to Social Security is asking yourself what you know about yourself the government doesn’t. Social Security was designed based on actuarial tables taking into account millions of workers claiming Social Security. The Trust Group Financial Services provides you with guidance so you can choose the optimal filing strategy with YOUR unique life in mind.
Five facts about Social Security that may surprise you and one major decision that will impact your retirement the rest of your life.
Are you needlessly paying more taxes than you should? Have you explored all your options when it comes to managing your taxable income?
How does one know they’re being as efficient as possible when it comes to taxes? There are so many exemptions and deductions available, it’s hard to keep track of which ones are appropriate for the retirement strategy you’re implementing.
There are also little-known strategies that can provide potential savings and a positive financial impact on your estate and retirement plan. That’s where The Trust Group Financial Services comes in.
We understand the importance of making sure you take advantage of deductions and exemptions available, as well as understand the commonly overlooked tax-reduction and tax-elimination strategies. Think IRAs, rollovers, required minimum distributions (RMDs), federal estate taxes (The Death Tax) and tax-free benefits. Whatever advantage we find that works, we’ll ensure it’s integrated into your retirement plan.
