People are living longer and having fewer children. There is a rising concern that people will have less family support as they age. Most people out live their financial resources; now more than ever is it ever so important to have a solid financial plan that work with your elder law estate plan.

Unlike many other areas of the law, elder care law is defined by the needs of the client, rather than a particular field of law. Because of this, elder care law attorneys are also aware that their clients' needs often extend beyond the basic legal services. For this reason, The Christine Thea Rubinstein Law Firm are linked to a network of professionals in local communities who serve the needs of the senior population.

Make an appointment with one of the estate planning attorneys at The Christine Thea Rubinstein Law Firm today to discuss your options. Standalone Retirement Trusts must be drafted carefully in order to ensure that the trust qualifies as a “Designated Beneficiary.” This guarantees that the trust will be able to take out the minimum required distributions according to the beneficiary’s life expectancy, not the plan participant’s. If the trust is not set up properly, the entire inherited IRA will need to be withdrawn within five years of the plan participant’s death. Work with a reputable planner to make sure your trust is structured correctly and that your beneficiary, and not his or her creditor will receive the funds you pass down. The attorneys at The Christine Thea Rubinstein Law Firm are not only trained in handling simple estate, will and probate matters, we take care of complex living trust estate litigation in Nassau County, Suffolk County, Queens County, Bronx, Westchester, Richmond County, Manhattan and Brooklyn Kings County New York.

To put it simply, estate planning involves deciding how you want your assets distributed after you die (or become unable to make your own financial decisions). Estate planning can be complicated, so it's best to consult a financial adviser and a lawyer when drawing up your estate plan.
