If you have recently received an inheritance, you may be grieving the death of a loved one and experiencing a significant change in your finances at the same time. Your feelings about what you have received may include the wish to preserve the inheritance, prudently incorporate the inheritance into your finances, navigate the expectations of those around you, and honor the person who gave you this gift.
From a financial planning perspective, your inheritance may create complexity that requires a thoughtful approach. Your tax rate may change. How the assets are taxed may depend on how you are receiving them. You may need to become fluent in trusts, trustees, and trust taxation. You may need to change your own estate plan. And, you may have new asset protection issues you have not had before. Additionally, you will eventually need to make decisions about how to invest the inheritance toward your chosen goals. You may find the process overwhelming and out of control. You may feel the need to slow things down and park the inheritance until a time when you are more comfortable making decisions.
