Greetings from all of us at Cornerstone -

One of the nicest gifts you can leave your heirs is an estate that's in good order, planned according to your wishes, and contains provisions to protect your assets.  You can accomplish all this through thoughtful estate planning.  We recommend reviewing your estate documents every four years to ensure the outcome is consistent with your intentions. 

This is a great time to review your estate documents.  Why?  We are currently in between two events that  happen every four years - the Summer Olympics and the Presidential Elections.  These events can serve as great reminders to thoroughly inspect your estate documents.  Revisit your documentation to check accuracy, ensure you're leveraging new estate legislation to your advantage, and to safeguard your intentions.  The articles below can help you assess the health of your estate, but feel free to reach out to us with questions.  

We hope that these articles are helpful as you encounter the financial challenges of everyday life. As always, if you have ideas for upcoming topics or feedback on the newsletter we would love to hear from you. Thank you for the privilege of continuing to assist you on your journey to meet your financial goals.
