Gifts by Life Events

Married or Divorced

If you recently married or divorced, had a spouse pass away or started a new relationship, it is critical to review how these life events may have affected your estate plan. Due to certain federal and state laws, your plans may have even automatically changed without your knowing as a result of one or more of the above scenarios.

Changed Jobs or Retired

Retirement accounts such as an IRA, 401(k) or 403(b) are not governed by your will. If you have opened a retirement account at a new job, or consolidated accounts upon retiring, it is important to review your beneficiary designations. Regardless of the terms of your will, these accounts will be distributed to your designated beneficiaries upon your death.
