Bequest of Insurance
Wayne: I wasn't ready to part with the insurance quite yet. I wanted to preserve the option of giving it to our family if someone needed extra help down the road. We both wondered if there was a way we could commit now to help our favorite charity's work but make our gift at a later date when it was clear the policy wouldn't be used.
Wayne: I also liked the fact that our estate would benefit from tax savings, which would help to preserve other assets intended for our family.
