How the New Estate Laws Could Limit a Surviving Spouse’s Independent Access to the Family Money

Pittsburgh, PA, February 18, 2011 - In December 2010, Congress approved and the President signed a multi-billion dollar tax cut package which will unknowingly result in the partial disinheritance of the surviving spouse.

We are now in a completely different estate tax environment ripe for the cruelest trap of all: where the standard language of traditional wills and trusts forces too much money (now up to $5,000,000) into a trust limiting the surviving spouse to income and the right to invade principal for health, maintenance and support. If the trust is overfunded, which is likely under the new law, less discretionary income is available for the surviving spouse. Furthermore, if this common trust is the beneficiary of an IRA or retirement plan, massive income taxes are also triggered—all this can be avoided with appropriate language in wills and trusts and appropriate beneficiary designations of IRAs, Roth IRAs and retirement plans.

Under the new estate tax laws, older traditional estate plans are not helpful, but harmful, because of the severe restrictions they place on the surviving spouse, something most couples do not want. Fortunately, there is an appropriate response, but few estate attorneys or advisors know it—Lange’s Cascading Beneficiary Plan™. His book, Retire Secure!, describes this plan in detail and is endorsed by Charles Schwab, Jane Bryant Quinn, Larry King and dozens of financial professionals.

Learn more about the solution to the problem; Lange’s Cascading Beneficiary Plan™—it puts the surviving spouse back in the driver’s seat instead of being held hostage by an unnecessary trust.
