The Longevity Problem - Don't Outlive Your Money - Part Two (1)

The Longevity Risk – Don’t Outlive Your Money, and Leave Some for the Kids – Part 2


What is the Longevity Risk?

 We have discussed what the “Longevity Risk” is in another blog, but it will serve us well to repeat the definition again.  Longevity Risk is the risk of living a long life, but needing so much personal care, such as assisted living or nursing care, that you outlive your money.  When this happens, all of the property and money you were hoping to give to your kids or others may be completely used up and gone. 


I Already Have an Estate Plan, Won’t That Protect My Assets?

Not necessarily.  Many people I’ve run into in San Diego have created some kind of Estate Plan.  Most of the time the Estate Plan will consist of a Pour-Over Will, a Revocable Living Trust, an Advance Healthcare Directive (or ACHD, or AHD), a Durable Power of Attorney (a DPOA or POA), a HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) release and some other documents.  That’s great, but that alone doesn’t provide asset protection.  As we get older our needs change.  For most of us our assets also change as we mature.


What Can I Do to Protect my kid’s inheritance?

There are choices available to most of us.  Call me and let’s discuss options and we will see if we can keep the golden years golden.  Please see my Blog for more discussion on the topic of planning for the elderly and asset protection.
