Do You Understand and Use SLATs?

(If not, you may be missing out!)

You may have heard about Spousal Lifetime Access Trusts, otherwise known as SLATs.  But are you actually using them in your practice?  Well, your competitors are!

Do you really understand SLATs, how to use them and where they fit into your clients’ estate plans? Did you know that you can set up a SLAT where the assets are protected from creditors and divorcing spouses and free of estate taxes, yet you can have indirect access to the assets? And did you know that you can set one up without even making a completed gift for gift tax purposes?

Whether you’re an attorney, CPA, life insurance advisor, trust officer or financial planner, it is crucial for you to understand how SLATs work and what opportunities, as estate planners, you have to use them to help your clients.
