RECENT FLOOD OF CALLS FOR ASSET PROTECTION: in just the last week we’ve received a multitude of calls from people asking to set up new Plans to protect their assets.
ISSUES BEYOND ONES CONTROL: one might not actually believe some of the stories affecting those calling in for help. Here’s 2 examples: (1) a teenager rides a horse without permission and gets his ribcage and pelvis crushed. But the owner didn’t know he was there and doesn’t have insurance for the horse because the carriers won’t provide coverage because of the fire danger. Then (2) a client who’s been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic fallout and lost all his employees and can’t meet contract demands, so now has vendors claiming loss of revenues.
THE PRE-PLANNER HAS A CHANCE: the 1st case client had done his planning in advance and has been funding his PRP plan for many years. So while he has no insurance coverage, the true intent of the Plan for retirement has been established and funded assets can claim an exemption from any creditor attack/seizure in litigation.
THE PROCRASTINATOR MIGHT NOT: in person in the 2nd case came to us 2 years ago and decided not to establish a PRP plans, so now there is no intent or proving the need for retirement. Instead any establishing of a Plan at this point will simply be viewed with the primary goal of evading creditors, not for retirement, and will likely find themselves exposed under California UVTA (fraudulent transfer) laws, as well as find solutions to be much more expensive with much less margin of success in defense.
