How can insurance cover inheritance tax for my children?

Through life insurance, a client can purchase a guaranteed product to offset the taxes that one’s estate may grow to over time. The client can purchase a policy to cover the taxes due at death, thus allowing the full estate to pass on to the heirs/beneficiary.

What are the most important factors to consider when choosing a life insurance company?

Financial Stability, Company Ratings, Solvency, and Claim-Paying History.

What’s a typical day look like?

COFFEE! LOTS!!! I am usually at my office by 5:30 a.m.

I enjoy the solitude before my staff arrives. Brief daily team meeting is at 8 a.m., and we begin client appointments at 8:30 a.m. I leave the office by 3 p.m. to pick up my girls from school, and then Mom duty kicks in. Basically, shuttling the girls to various activities and events. Family dinner is always mandatory.

How often should coverage be reviewed?

Annually, at minimum. More often should a life-changing event occur.
