You have the ability to create as many accounts as you require for your clients. To do this you would simply click on the <New Account> button.
Enter in a description for this account then under “Account Types”, you can select the type of account it will be. Within the Ownership section you can enter what percentage is owned by either the spouse, client or dependant. In our example you will see that 100% is owned by Mark.
The “Managed” check box tells the system whether or not you actually manage this particular account as the client’s advisor.
The “Include in Planning” checkbox is a handy feature that allows you to tell the system to ignore an account, either one you’ve entered manually or one that has come in electronically through integration. This allows you to control what gets included in the IPS you are preparing or even what’s included in any long-term life goals planning you are doing. If we turn off this check box, it will be as if this account is invisible on every other screen and in all documents.
The Liquid on Death and Liquid on Emergency, fields where you can choose if the account is liquid on death or not, the same with the Liquid on Emergency. These fields are also used for when you want to create a Estate Liquidity Report from the Will Information screen.
Subject to Probate check box is used for estate planning, probate is one of those items that can sometimes be avoided through joint ownership and other maneuvers. Hence we allow you to identify if a particular account will be subject to Probate on the death of the current owner. When this is checked off, the analysis will automatically create a probate expense record based on the probate rate specified on the Planning Assumptions screen.
The “Beneficiary is where you can identify if there is a named beneficiary for the holdings of this account. The default for a married person is usually “Surviving Spouse” however, you can also indicate that the beneficiary is the “Estate” or some other third party.
NEW to version 5.3.1 when you select the other radio button it opens up many more options on who you want to have as the beneficiary, also you can have more than one beneficiary on an account.
Portfolio drop down list allows you to choose the portfolio you wish these funds to be earmarked for. For example you may have a goal called “House Upgrade” or “Boat Upgrade” by choosing this portfolio it will use the funds from this account for that portfolio goal. The Add Portfolio button will allow you to add new portfios. To read more on this please click here.
