Estate Planning

Our estate planning services have been developed to help preserve what you have worked so hard to build over the years and to help you plan for the eventual distribution of your assets to your heirs.
 

Proper estate planning may help you:

  • Obtain financial security for your family.
  • Pass your estate on to your heirs according to your wishes.
  • Reduce or eliminate taxes, administrative expenses and delays in connection with the transfer of your estate.
  • Provide liquidity to cover taxes, debts and expenses your estate may owe.
  • Provide the peace of mind that comes with knowing steps have been taken to protect the people who depend on you, as well as everything you've worked a lifetime to build.
The primary reason of Estate Planning is to accomplish the distribution of assets, to whom you wish minimizing taxation. Having a successful estate plan assures your wishes for your heirs. The initial planning process includes taking an inventory of your assets, discussing with trusted advisors, such as attorneys and accountants, your goals for the future.
 
Below is a brief list of items that should be considered to when taking inventory of your assets:
  • Real Estate (home or other real estate ventures)
  • Savings (bank accounts, CD's or money markets
  • Investments (stocks, bonds, mutual funds)
  • 401(k), IRA, pension and other retirements accounts
  • Life insurance policies/annuities
  • Ownership in a business(es)
  • Motor vehicles (cars, boats, planes)
  • Jewelry
  • Other personal property of worth
The planning process is one that takes time and is ever changing. However, most people assume that estate planning is for the wealthy. Your loved ones are at risk of losing all that you have built in your lifetime, without proper planning, you are in danger of the following:
  • The transferring of your assets will be decided by the laws that govern your state.
  • Court appointed administrators make the decision; where, who and how much of your assets are distributed. As well as receiving expenses for their work and a deduction to the total amount that could be given to your loved ones.
  • When children are involved, it could result in a court appointed guardian.
  • A family owned business could be sold without the families consent.
  • Unnecessary estate taxes can be relinquished and administrative services can be incurred and deducted from your assets

What Our Customers Are Saying... 

We recently switched our insurance policies based on our previous positive experience with Bruce Southwell. When we understood that we would save over $500 a year and receive more complete coverage we moved our insurance to Bruce and Safeco and have been pleased with the results.

P.M.

We recently changed our insurance coverage to the Bruce Southwell Insurance Agency . Mr. Southwell is an experienced and knowledgeable agent who is happy to fully answer questions about insurance. His expertise was valuable in putting together an insurance package covering our specific needs. The result was that compared to our previous policy we now have not only better coverage but also at significantly less cost.

Jim K.

Ihave known Bruce for approx. 28 years. Ihave relied on his advice and knowledge in the span of those years. We continued to move with him to his new venture as well. This saved us approximately $1000 a year on insurance premiums WITH better/more coverage. He did all the footwork in transferring our policies so the change was easy and transparent for the most part. He is responsive to our questions and his customer service skills are excellent.

Cindy G.

Bruce Southwell had been our insurance agent for thirty seven years and when he informed us that he could offer us better coverage at a lower cost by switching companies we jumped at the chance. The change was easy and we are now enjoying better coverage on our home and cars as well as a savings of over $600 a year.

My wife and I have been with Bruce for 25 years,maybe a little longer. Bruce has been there for us and helped us through these times and understood our needs. I'm very glad to know him and have him represent us,this man is someone you can trust. Thank you Bruce Chuck S.

My husband and Ihave been insured with our agent, Bruce Southwell, for about 30
years. Bruce has always been an outstanding agent for us. We recently left him for a year or so due to the rising cost of our previous insurance. However, since he has started Southwell Insurance Agency we returned to him, preferring to be with someone we have known and worked with for a long time, and he also was able to save us over $300 annually on our auto insurance. We would highly recommend Bruce for your insurance needs. He is a great guy!

Bruce Southwell has been my insurance agent for over 25 years. This long track record of friendly, professional service is why he is still my insurance agent, and now, with his independent agency, is also saving me money on my home and auto insurance premiums.Iswitched insurance companies; Idid not switch insurance agents.

John R. Omaha, NE

I want to thank you for your help in switching my insurance. I had been looking at different options as my insurance was increasing at my previou s company. You
had been my agent for 18 years and had always served me well. The opportunity to have you as my agent again and to get policies tailored to my need s was ju st what I needed . The policie saved me approximately $200 per year and are better than what I had.

You made the whole process seamless and the transfer went without a hitch.

Thank you again and have a wonderful 2016.

Chuck S.


The reason we switched from the former company, is because Ifelt like they were not working in our best interest .After you left, the new representative was less than diligent with our account .After speaking with you, we made the decision to switch. It saved us money, and we are back with the agent that has taken care of our insurance needs for about 20 years.    Dan J.


"I made the switch to the Southwell Insurance Agency after having been with my prior insurance company for years. It seemed like Iwas taken for granted and based on what Iwas seeing in the industry, my rates just didn't seem to be competitive. I had worked with Bruce Southwell years ago, and when Ifound out he had his own agency, Iknew Ineeded to inquire about my coverage needs! Bruce was very helpful in getting my rates reduced on my homeowners, auto, and even an umbrella policy! Additionally, Bruce made recommendations on provisions of my policies
that Icould adjust to obtain even greater savings. I'm very pleased with the quick responses and great pricing that Iget by working with Bruce Southwell."
