Estate Planning Information and Sample Language
The sample language here is for some popular approaches to estate planning that you can share with your attorney or advisor. While we are happy to help you create your legacy, RAICES is not engaged in legal or tax advisory services.
Certain IRS limitations apply. The information presented is not intended as legal or financial advice. Please consult your own professional advisors to discuss your specific situation.
You may leave RAICES all or a portion of the remaining assets after your estate expenses and specific bequests are distributed:
I give and devise to RAICES (EIN #74-2436920), with a primary office at 1305 N. Flores Street, San Antonio, TX 78212, all [or state a percentage] of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support.
You may name RAICES as a beneficiary of a specific amount from your estate:
I give and devise to RAICES (EIN #74-2436920), with a primary office at 1305 N. Flores Street, San Antonio, TX 78212, the sum of $________ [or asset] to be used for its general support.
You may name RAICES as a contingent beneficiary in your will or personal trust if one or more of your specific bequests cannot be fulfilled:
If [insert name] is not living at the time of my demise, I give and devise to RAICES (EIN #74-2436920), with a primary office at 1305 N. Flores Street, San Antonio, TX 78212, the sum of $_________ [or all or a percentage of the residue of my estate] to be used for its general support.
No will is necessary to designate RAICES as a beneficiary of your IRA, other qualified retirement plan, life insurance, donor-advised fund, or bank account. You may name RAICES as a beneficiary, accomplishing a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings.
You maintain complete control over the asset, and after your lifetime, the plan passes to support RAICES, free of both estate and income taxes. Please consult with your financial advisor regarding the tax benefits of such gifts.
Simply request a change of beneficiary form from the administrator of your plan, policy, fund, or account. Complete and return the form to your administrator and notify RAICES via email at [email protected]
If you would like to make a gift that is specific to your goals and interests, RAICES can provide customized language.
