Asset protection involves making sure that your assets (e.g., stocks, bank accounts, businesses, property) are protected from creditors, seizure, divorce, taxation, bankruptcy, and a range of other collection actions. In brief, asset protection is the process of protecting your wealth and assets through financial planning strategies to keep your assets safe legally (that is, not through illegal methods like concealment of assets or fraud). It is a good idea to cultivate an asset protection plan early so that you can be better prepared if a liability arises and to protect against claims against you.
There are several different ways you can protect your assets, including:
- Creating a will. You can instruct the specific ways you would like your assets and estate to be handled once you are gone, protecting against family disputes or creditor seizure, as you will also appoint a personal representative (executor) in your will who will oversee all these matters.
- Funding a trust. You can place your assets in a trust with named beneficiaries so that the assets will transfer to the beneficiaries directly after you pass. This can help to avoid disputes over vague or unattended assets when you’re gone.
- Enrolling in insurance policies. Insurance policies can protect your assets in cases of accidents or lawsuits. Being underinsured may leave you vulnerable to certain legal actions.
- Creating Family Limited Partnerships (FLPs). The ownership of assets can be transferred into an FLP to safeguard against potential creditors, lawsuits, and extra taxes. An FLP allows you and your spouse to own a small portion of the partnership while you still retain control the entire partnership and its assets, and it can also help you reduce some income and estate taxes.
Do not hesitate to get started on your asset protection plan today. If you do not take the appropriate steps to safeguard your property and assets, you could be dangerously vulnerable to creditors and court judgments that might impact your holdings.
