How is having assets a risk of life?
Passing those assets on at death could come at an expense.Here in Pennsylvania there is a State inheritance tax that can affect many assets that pass at death to someone other than a spouse.
At the Federal level there are Federal estate taxes which under current law apply to estates in excess of $5,120,000. With proper planning this may not apply at the death of a spouse but rather when assets pass from one generation to another.
Estate planning** can help you to position assets to minimize estate costs but when that is not enough Life Insurance can be used to help create additional liquidity.
