Legal & Planning Services: Life Insurance.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is often a daunting part of estate planning for many clients. Choosing the right life insurance can seem complicated. But, life insurance is actually a valuable and flexible tool for your estate, one that can provide security for your loved ones income tax free. Your life insurance policy, when properly designed, can also provide your loved ones some liquidity to pay any estate taxes.

At Hook Law Center, we approach estate planning with your financial protection in mind. We can set up an irrevocable life insurance trust (ILIT) for you, which will provide asset protection for your beneficiaries. A life insurance policy is considered part of your overall estate and will be subject to estate taxes, but by placing the insurance into an irrevocable life insurance trust, the proceeds can be protected from estate taxes. Your irrevocable life insurance trust can also be used to preserve your IRA, or to protect your beneficiaries in the event of divorce.

Though few clients start out considering life insurance a tool with true financial potential, at Hook Law Center, our attorneys can show you the best strategies tailored to your specific needs with this essential estate planning tool.

I am beholden to Mr. Hook and the entire staff who advised me during the difficult time following my sisters’ death. The firm was highly recommended and I understand why. Any bewilderment I felt going through the estate process was eased by the compassion and professionalism exercised by this law firm. I am eternally grateful.
