Basic Bequest Administration — from the Day-to-Day to the Dumfounding

No matter the size of your operation, bequest administration is never simple. Each estate has its own challenges. In this session, Stacy discusses some of strategies for managing a pool of active estates. In doing so, she will address a variety of challenges, including: problematic gift restrictions; difficult IRA distributions; litigation threats; and what to do when you inherit land or another illiquid asset. The hope is that you will take away useful tips for running a smooth bequest administration program.

Advanced Bequest Administration — Case Studies of Complex Estates that are Just a Bit Too Interesting

This session will look at several complex estate situations through real life case studies — dealing with issues like unmarketable real property; international law and tax; and multiple charities. Stacy will highlight some of main challenges and steps taken, through legal and diplomatic efforts, to mitigate if not resolve those challenges. We will also discuss using metrics to track and show the success of your bequest administration program.
