We all have an estate. Your estate includes your car, house, wedding ring, life insurance, 401K… all of your stuff. An estate plan determines to whom your stuff will be given when you move into eternity. We offer this course to help God’s people maximize the impact of their estate for the benefit of themselves, family and the Kingdom of God.
Fact #1 – Estate Planning is a stewardship issue. God has entrusted you with significant resources. Preparing for the inevitable future reflects good stewardship and protects your family.
Fact #2 – An estate plan will bring peace of mind. Estate planning is the most procrastinated list – 70% of families have not done any estate planning. Your estate plan includes your desires on medical decisions, guardianship of your minor children and distribution of your valuables. Your instructions are legally binding and are guaranteed to be followed.
Fact #3 – An estate plan will save you and your beneficiaries time and money. Establishing a living trust may lower your estate taxes and will eliminate probate. On average, an estate plan saves your loved ones nine months to two years and $16,000 to $60,000 in probate, alone.
Fact #4 – The largest charitable beneficiary in the world, if you do not have a plan, is the Federal Government in the form of unnecessary taxes. In the state of Michigan, if you have $15,000 in assets and no living trust, your estate WILL go to probate.
Fact #5 – Estate Taxes, Capital Gains Taxes and Income Taxes are optional. All of these taxes can be significantly reduced if you use the charitable portion in the tax code to full advantage.
Fact #6 – There is no out-of-pocket cost for this seminar or to establish your living trust. Financial Planning Ministries is a non-profit organization that simply provides the opportunity for you to make a charitable contribution, should you so choose, at the time of your passing on into eternity.
