Gifts of Retirement Assets

Simple Ways to Leave a Legacy to A.R.E.

Giving Retirement Assets to A.R.E.

Retirement funds, such as a 401(k) or IRA, can be a great asset to leave to the A.R.E. Without careful planning, over 70% of retirement assets could end up going to pay estate and income taxes.

You might consider leaving 100% of your retirement assets (the balance in your retirement account upon your death or upon the death of your spouse) to A.R.E. and leaving other assets to your family that carry less tax liability.

It’s easy – just complete a Beneficiary Designation or similar form and list A.R.E. as beneficiary. Should you need additional guidance in completing Change of Beneficiary Forms to name A.R.E., please contact us.
