Thanksgiving is a Good Time to Discuss Estate Planning

Family Gatherings are Prime Opportunities for Discussions About the Future

Do you subscribe to the belief that family gatherings aren’t an appropriate place to discuss things like politics, religion or money?

Topics such as where your assets will go when you die can be uncomfortable to broach, but estate planning is integral to your family’s financial future.

Financial Planning for The Breadwinner of a Multigenerational Household

Did you know that over 60 million Americans are living in a home with either grandparent, grandchildren, or with two or more adult generations? That’s nearly 20% of America.

Whether it was planned or not, you may at one time be living in a multi-generational household. Kids may need to move back in after college. In fact, over 36% of 18-31year olds are living at home. Forty-seven percent of adults aged 40-50 have a parent 65 or older and are still raising or have adult children with financial needs.  Whether it’s the cost of living increases, childcare needs, health issues, or a job loss, the trend of moving into a multi-generational family home has been on the rise since 1980, hitting a high point during the 2007-9 recession. Whatever the case, living in a multi-family household can be an enriching and positive experience. This article will go over some ways to streamline the process so that it is beneficial to everyone.
