What is Generational or Multigenerational Planning?

Generational or multigenerational planning is like estate planning, with a focus on managing the distribution of assets in the event of one’s death or incapacitation; however, it is not a simple one-way transfer of assets. Generational planning not only places its focus on the next generation but their children and maybe even living elderly members of the family. Planning of this nature may ensure that immediate children receive the benefits of a life’s work, but it can also include how to do the same for their children.

In many families, the interests or needs of different members vary and overlap. When money is separated from one generation to the next, multigenerational planning may even be MORE necessary. For example, a grandparent may wish to support their grandchildren’s college needs. Grandchildren may one day have to support the care of their grandparents. In the event of an unexpected death, then discussions about whether or not a spouse can carry on alone should take place. Are all beneficiaries capable of handling an inheritance? There are many scenarios, but ultimately this is a plan for how one legacy can support generations of family.
