The SECURE Act (0:00 – 10:36)
This segment discusses the new SECURE Act and how the new law impacts everyone with a 401K, IRA, or other retirement assets.
Congress has passed a law that will raise the taxes on your children and grandchildren by drastically changing how some assets you leave them will be taxed. The New Tax Law (The SECURE Act) impacts retirement plans and is the most significant change to retirement plans in years. We discuss how the Secure Act impacts your current and future estate plans.
Beneficiaries of IRAs, 401ks, and any other assets will be affected. To learn more and avoid tax disasters under the new act, fill out the contact form and we will reach out to schedule your complimentary consultation.

Estate plans are not just for passing items to the living. Preventative planning allows you to have choices for your long-term care planning options without depleting everything you built in just a few months because of the cost of care! Plan when you can, before a crisis.

Leaving a Lasting Legacy (39:57 – 1:00:03)
This segment is for anyone who wants to learn more about leaving a lasting legacy for generations to come that goes beyond just the material things.
How do you want to live out the rest of your “golden” years? This segment addresses what you need to be thinking about when choosing a nursing home. What type of care do you want? How often do you want your hair done? Do you want ice cream with your dinner? These are topics most people do not think about before it’s too late.
Often when thinking of your estate, you think about all of the “stuff” you have, but how often do you plan your legacy? The one your family will carry on after you are gone. It is never too late to begin thinking of what your legacy means to you. Our founder, Lloyd Copenbarger, discusses the meaning of legacy and what you can do to begin thinking of yours, if you have not already.
What part of your legacy are you leaving to the Kingdom? Lloyd also discusses leaving a potion of your estate to your church or charity of your choice by using a Charitable Remainder Trust.
