Estate Planning

Estate Planning for Allentown, Lancaster and Reading, PA Residents

Do you live in Allentown, PA or Lancaster? How about Reading, PA? Are you wondering what will happen to your assets when you're deceased? Proper estate planning can ensure the things you worked hard to amass go to the people and entities you so choose.

Estate planning on your own can be complicated and costly. And the list is endless... state taxes, bureaucracy, probate courts, unfair appraisals, health care concerns, eligibility of heirs, life insurance, IRA's, 401K's, annuities, burial or cremation costs, and intent regarding death-postponing treatment to name a few. Not knowing your legal and financial rights often ends up costing you more in the end.

Come in today or contact our representatives and we'll pay you a visit. No estate is too big or too small. We work with individuals from Allentown, PA to Reading and back to Lancaster. Regardless of your situation, give Ryder & Company the opportunity to be your partner in planning out your legacy. 

I live in Reading, PA but my heir lives in Allentown. How will that affect my estate planning?

Thoughts of estate planning often bring more questions than answers: Could an heir be too young to inherit? Should the inheritance be given at a certain age? How will they be notified if we live in different cities (like the above example of estate planning in Reading, PA with an heir in Allentown)?  Is the intended beneficiary in a shaky marriage with divorce as a possibility? Are there children from a previous marriage? Should inheritance be protected from potential creditors of the heir? Are there taxes that can be avoided? Are you able to avoid the probate court rules, delays, and costs?

Planning what happens to your estate when you're gone can seem frustrating and intimidating without qualified help.

You may feel that you're too young to care about estate planning. Or, perhaps the reminder of death makes you uncomfortable. You might be tempted to put the whole thing off, assuming that it will just take care of itself. In all cases, estate planning ends up saving your family lots of time, heartache and money.
