Later Life Planning
Thanks to better medical care and healthier lifestyles, we have the prospect of living longer. But while an increase in life expectancy may seem like good news on the face of it, it has to be recognised that there are a number of financial implications that go with it.
Our later life planning advice enables you to plan for IHT by providing monetary gifts to your loved ones and securing an income to help cover your long term care costs.
We are committed to helping people meet their financial needs throughout their lifetime and long term care planning is no exception. Planning for later life gives peace of mind enabling you to plan your IHT exposure, make gifts to your heirs during your lifetime and secure a pre-set income should you need long term care in the future.
The value of an investment may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than the amount invested. If the “income” taken exceeds the growth on the Plan, the capital will be eroded.
Its key benefits are:
Safely making monetary gifts to your loved ones
Inheritance Tax exposure can be reduced or even eliminated
To help you to safeguard against costs, you can arrange a pre-set income for life if required
Keeping control of your money
